Militant arrested in Kohat
KOHAT: Police on Thursday arrested a militant along with 22 other suspected persons during an operation in so-called ‘no go area’ near Lachi town in Kohat district.
Following a tip-off that a militant commander Wahid Jalal is present at his den, district police officer Mubarik Zeb Khan constituted four raiding parties to nab him. The elite police force sealed off the whole area and attacked the den. After severe exchange of fire Wahid Jalal was arrested along with a Kalashnikov and cartridges. He and 22 other suspects were shifted to unknown place for interrogation.
The seizure from other suspects included one Stengun, seven rifles, three pistols and thousands of bullets. The Lachi town police have registered cases against the accused and started investigations.
Earlier in 2008 police and other law-enforcement agencies had carried out similar joint operations in the Ghurzandi locality of Lachi tehsil in which four kidnapped officials were released. In 2009, the police again raided the place and killed brother of arrested commander, Taj Meer Jalal, in firing.
