QUETTA: As many as seven terrorists of Baloch subnationalist group, BLF (Balochistan Liberation Front), were killed and arms and explosives recovered during a IBO by the CTD Balochistan in Kohar Dam, near Sirki Jungle, District Loralai, on Wednesday.

According to a CTD spokesman, the police received information about the movement of BLF terrorists from Afghanistan towards Kohar Dam, district Loralai, to carry out terrorism against a sensitive installation. Acting on the tip-off on Wednesday, the CTD timely intercepted the terrorists who were asked to surrender.
