KHAR: A cop was martyred and two soldiers were injured in two back-to-back blasts in the Bajaur tribal district on Sunday, official sources said.

They said that the security forces and police were carrying out a joint search operation in the Darra area in Bajaur’s Salarzai tehshil when an explosion took place. It caused injuries to two soldiers, Naik Arshad and Sepoy Muhammad Zeb.

“Another blast took place after a short interval in the same area in which a policeman, Waqifullah, was martyred,” an official said. After the twin blasts, the security forces and police cordoned off the area and launched a search operation in a bid to capture the perpetrators of the attacks.

The martyred cop and injured soldiers were shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital in Khar. Later, the funeral prayer of the police constable was offered in the Civil Colony in Khar. It was attended by the police, civil and military officials.
