PESHAWAR: The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD)  on Friday shot dead five terrorists during a search operation  in the city's  Shagai area after both sides exchanged fire.

The CTD said a security operation was conducted in the area following a tip-off about the militants' whereabouts.

Explosive material and weapons — including three suicide vests, two pistols, two hand grenades, and three SMGs were recovered — were recovered from militants. The terrorists had arrived in the area from the Millagori district.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector-General Sanaullah Abbasi said police would continue to conduct operations against the extremists.
