Two miscreants were killed when a remote control device went off on roadside in the wee hours on Sunday here at Zakhakhel area.

Political administration sources said that two miscreants were planting remote control device with a bridge in Zakhakhel area which went off prematurely while they were planting it.

Bodies of the militants were pierced into pieces by the powerful bomb which was destined to destroy the bridge. It was impossible to identify the militants because their bodies turned into pieces as a result of explosion, official sources said.

Official sources further said that it might be possible that security forces or other officials may be the target of militants who met their fate in the blast because Landi kotal-Torkhum is the main route leading to Afghanistan.

The area was cordoned off by the security forces to net the remaining insurgents in the area.
