MINGORA: Security forces and police raided some godowns in the Kozabamakhela area of Matta tehsil, Swat, on Thursday, recovering a huge amount of weaponry.
No one was arrested in the raids, in which the security forces recovered 22 rocket launchers; a bomb; two crates of Bren gun rounds; three crates of mines; explosives used in bomb-making; a welding machine; stolen quilts and blankets; and edible items.
A curfew was re-imposed on the area until 3:00pm. It was earlier lifted for an hour, while a search operation was launched in the Sambat, Rahim Abad, and Sambat Cham areas of Matta. Separately, a large number of security personnel were deployed in the mountains of the Barikot area, and rumours of a potential operation in the area panicked the residents.
