Security forces claimed to have killed four suspected militants, including a key militant commander of a banned organisation during two different search operations in Balochistan’s Turbat and Kalat areas on Wednesday.
At least two Frontier Corps (FC) personnel were also killed during exchange of fire with militants in Turbat’s Balnagoor area.
An FC spokesman told reporters that security forces launched a search operation against militants involved in attacks on security officials and civilians in various parts of Kech district’s Turbat area.
He said there was an exchange of fire between security forces and miscreants in Balnagoor.
“Six miscreants belonging to a banned militant organisation have been killed since yesterday,” he said.
Two FC men were also killed in the clash.
Security forces also seized weapons from the possession of the miscreants, the spokesman added.
