The law enforcement agencies have recovered a heavy cache of explosive material and arms and ammunition in two raids on Friday and detained three men, police sources said.
The involvement of government-related department in both incidents is claimed by law enforcement agencies, sources maintained.
A joint team of police and rangers, in the first raid, impounded a car containing a large quantity of explosives and arrested two men.
The team seized the car laden with 75 kilograms of explosives near GT Road in Taxila and arrested two men. The car was heading towards Rawalpindi.
Police claimed that the arrested men intended to carry out a large attack in Rawalpindi.
In another breakthrough, the law enforcement agencies arrested a train passenger coming from Peshawar to Rawalpindi and recovered two pistols, three 47-AK Rifles with hundreds of bullets of different calibers. The arrested passenger was identified as Dhani Bakhsh, while his accomplice, Gul Bahadar, managed to escape from the railway station.

Sources said that police later arrested three accomplices of the suicide bomber from Fatehjang Road. Sources, quoting investigation report, claimed that the suicide bomber identified as Kausar Ali, had been a student of the Lal Masjid seminary.
