Security forces foil bid to smuggle explosive, weapons from Afghanistan

CHAMAN: Security forces had foiled a major terrorism bid after they apprehended a vehicle laden with explosives and weapons close to the Pak-Afghan border in Chaman on Saturday morning.

The sources said that the seizure was made during a raid conducted by security forces near the border with Afghanistan.

Bomb disposal experts were called in to defuse the explosives inside the vehicle.

One suspect was arrested and shifted to an undisclosed location for interrogation.

Security officials said that the terrorists had planned to smuggle the weapons and explosives to Quetta, the provincial capital of Balochistan for a major terror attack.

“An investigation is underway regarding the identity of the accused,” an official said.

Security officials were reluctant to disclose the quantity of explosive and the number of weapons seized in the raid.

Security has been tightened around the porous Afghan border to stop the flow of terrorists and weapons from neighbouring Afghanistan after a wave of terrorist attacks across the country took more than 100 lives.
