PESHAWAR: Suspected militants attacked the Riaz Shaheed police post in Sarband area with rockets and sophisticated weapons late Friday night. Security was already at its highest alert in the city and several main trade centres on Saddar Road and Sunehri Masjid Road were closed Friday due to threats of suicide bombing and terrorist attacks.
A police official said six rockets were fired at the Riaz Shaheed police post, on the boundary between Peshawar and tribal Khyber Agency at 11:30 pm. Heavy contingents of police rushed to the area to repulse the attack. The exchange of fire on the post continued for long. The attackers later managed to escape.
