Police foiled a major terror attack Saturday in Punjab province’s district Muzaffar Garh killing at least 4 takfiri Taliban militants, officials said. Heavy weapons and explosives, including four suicide jackets, 12 rockets, 40 hand grenades, 328 kilograms of gun-powder, were recovered from the militants after a gun battle.


“We received information from intelligence officials about the movement of militants in the area. The gunfight started when police signalled a car to stop for checks and takfiri militants fired at the cops, “ Rai Zamir-ul-Haq, police chief in the district, said.

Takfiri nasbi terrorists were planning to hit the Shia mourners on the anniversary of Imam Hussain (AS)’s chehlum.

“In the exchange of fire, we killed 4 militants. Two police officials were also injured by two grenades hurled at them by the militants,” he said. Police said they also found chemicals for potential use in an attack stored in the takfiri nasbi militants' vehicle, which was also confiscated for further investigation.

“By seizing such large quantity of weapons and explosives and killing these militants, we have foiled a major attempt of terror in the region. There were confirmed intelligence reports that the militants were planning major terrorist attacks in Multan and Muzaffargarh cities,” Haq said.

The authorities suspect that the militants are linked to the Punjabi Taliban faction of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), a takfiri militant outfit which has waged a long-term insurgency in the country and has killed thousands of people in suicide, bomb and gun attacks.

“The killed militants belonged to banned Punjabi Taliban's Abu-Ubaida group and we had received confirmed intelligence reports about their planned activities,” Haq said. Nabila Ghazanfar, a police spokeswoman in Lahore, confirmed the killings and said that the cops had cordoned off the area to search any other takfiri militants in the region.
