A detonation shook the vicinity near Hazar Khwani Chowk in Peshawar, signaling an explosion incident. Fortunately, initial reports indicate no casualties resulting from the blast.

Peshawar police disclosed that the explosion occurred in the middle of the road near Hazar Khwani Chowk, triggered by the detonation of explosive material placed in the vicinity. While no human casualties were recorded, a nearby police vehicle sustained minor damages.

In response to the incident, law enforcement swiftly mobilized, with police and bomb disposal units swiftly arriving at the scene. Investigations are underway to ascertain the composition and origin of the explosive material.

With concerns lingering over potential threats, authorities have launched a comprehensive search operation, extending across the surrounding areas to ensure the safety and security of the populace.

The incident near Hazar Khwani Chowk serves as a reminder of the persistent challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in combating terrorism and maintaining public safety. It underscores the need for continued vigilance and proactive measures to prevent such incidents in the future.

Citizens are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the authorities promptly. Collaborative efforts between law enforcement agencies and the community are essential in addressing security threats effectively and ensuring the well-being of all residents.

Earlier, four individuals suspected of involvement in the killing of policemen met their demise in a dramatic confrontation with law enforcement, citing statements from the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD).

The sequence of events unfolded during a mission to recover weapons in the Karol Jungle area, where Faizan Butt was identified among the detained suspects. The team successfully seized two pistols and hand grenades during this operation.

However, the situation quickly escalated when a group of five to six armed assailants ambushed the police party, initiating a deadly exchange of gunfire.

In the chaos that ensued, four attackers were fatally shot. The CTD spokesperson confirmed Faizan Butt’s association with a proscribed organization. Efforts to identify the remaining deceased suspects were ongoing.

Subsequently, a search operation was launched to capture any fleeing terrorists in the vicinity. The relentless efforts of law enforcement agencies underscore their commitment to combating terrorism and maintaining public safety.

These operations serve as a testament to the ongoing struggle against militant elements, highlighting the bravery and dedication of security personnel in safeguarding communities against threats posed by terrorism.
