Attock- At least a dozen suspected terrorists disguised as Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) were arrested at Attock.
The action was coordinated by the Punjab Police and Rangers. Sources confirmed that three suspected terrorists from Lower Dir were trafficking nine young boys to a Mansehra training camp in a van, when they were intercepted by the law enforcement agencies. "They could not come up with satisfactory answers and failed to prove their identities", an official said. He added that the suspects broke down under 'interrogative pressure' affirming police suspicions. "The minors were to be brainwashed/trained to become terrorists or even suicide bombers", a police official told a local TV channel. The suspects have been charged under the Anti Terrorism Act. Further investigation is underway.
