TERROR BID FOILED AS LEVIES RECOVER ARMS’ CACHE IN KOHLU:
Earlier in the day, Levies forces and intelligence agencies foiled a major terror bid in Kohlu as they recovered a huge cache of arms, ammunition and explosives during an operation here on Sunday.
Kohlu Deputy Commissioner (DC) Agha Naveed told reporters that the security forces launched an intelligence-based operation against anti-state elements in Kahan area of the district Kohlu of Balochistan.
A large number of weapons and explosives were recovered in the operation, including 181 RPG rockets and 172 RPG fuses, MMRR 75 gun and 80 rounds.
The Levies forces confiscated the recovered arms and ammunition but no arrest could be made.
A number of such operations have been conducted in the province rife with violence.
