Not less than four terrorists of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) insurgent group have been killed by the police operatives in a deadly crossfire in Balochistan province.
The insurgents were killed on Wednesday, May 26, as the Pakistani security personnel of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) intercepted them on a tip-off in the Aghburg area of Quetta.
According to Yahoo News, the terrorists were the first to open fire at the police before a retaliation which eventually led to the death of the weapon-carrying religious extremists.
The police source claimed that two terrorists who managed to flee after sustaining injuries are being man-hunted, adding that the insurgents were about to launch a major attack when they were busted.
TTP, also known as Pakistan Taliban, remains involved in terrorist activities against security forces in the province.
