RAWALPINDI: Two soldiers of Pakistan Army and two police officers were martyred, while three terrorists, including a High Value Target (HVT), were killed in a joint Intelligence Based Operation (IBO) which was conducted by security forces and police in general area Hassan Khel, Peshawar district, on Wednesday.

During the conduct of the operation on reported presence of a high value terrorist, three terrorists including the HVT, Abdul Raheem, were sent to hell after an intense exchange of fire.

Weapons and ammunition were also recovered from the killed terrorists. Terrorist Commander Abdul Raheem was highly wanted by the Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) and the government had fixed head money of Rs6 million on him. He remained actively involved in numerous terrorist activities and was also responsible for the Shahadat of Captain Hussain Jehangir Shaheed and Havildar Shafiqullah Shaheed on May 26 this year.

“Today’s operation has avenged the heinous act and has brought the main perpetrator to justice,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement said.

However, during the intense exchange of fire, four brave sons of soil Sepoy Muhammad Idrees (age: 34 years, resident of Swabi District), Sepoy Badam Gul (age: 34 years, resident of Kohat District) of Pakistan Army and Sub-Inspector Tajmir Shah, (age: 38 years, resident of Peshawar District) and Assistant Sub-Inspector Muhammad Akram (age: 34 years, resident of Mansehra District) of CTD KPK, having fought gallantly, embraced Shahadat.

Pakistan’s security forces stand shoulder to shoulder with other law enforcement agencies to ensure peace and stability across Pakistan and such sacrifices of our brave men further strengthen our resolve, the ISPR statement said.
