Peshawar: Militants attack checkpost
PESHAWAR: As reported by the Dawn News on Thursday, suspected militants attacked and damaged a checkpost in Shahabkhel, a suburban village in the limits of Badbher police station, at midnight on Wednesday, police and residents said. Hussain Khan, a resident of Batatal area of Shaikhan, told this correspondent that the firing started at midnight and continued for about one hour. “We avoided coming out of the houses as both police and the attackers used heavy weapons,” he said. He said that the attackers seemed to have come there from Bara side. “Police have not counted their number nor identified them but they must be members of Mangal Bagh-led militant group Lashkar-e-Islam,” he said.
