talibanThree terrorists of Yazidi nasbi takfiri Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) including its senior ring leader Amirullah Mehsud were killed in an encounter with Pakistan Rangers in which a Rangers official embraced martyrdom in Gulshan-e-Buner, Quaidabad, early on Wednesday morning.

A Rangers spokesperson confirmed that the condition of another soldier injured in the shoot-out was stable.

“The encounter took place during a targeted raid. The Rangers came under heavy fire upon entering the Gulshan-e-Buner area. The team reacted strategically and managed to kill three terrorists, while a Rangers official also embraced martyrdom,” he said.

“These terrorists were actively preparing for attacks on Ashura and weapons, grenades and ammunition were recovered from their possession,” he added, while paying tribute to the slain Rangers official, Ali Akbar, a native of Masehra who served in the paramilitary force for over seven years.

The Namaz-e-Janaza of Sepoy Akber Ali was offered at the Bhittai Rangers HQ on Wednesday afternoon and was attended by DG Rangers Maj Gen Rizwan Akhtar, DDG Rangers, AIG Karachi Shahid Hayat and other senior officials. He will be laid to rest in his ancestral village near Mansehra, he informed.

The Quaidabad police claimed that the raid was a joint operation of the police and Rangers. An official of the area police, Sadaqat Ali, identified the location as a compound near Swati Mohalla in Gulshan-e-Buner and said that three TTP terrorists and a Rangers sepoy were killed.

He identified the Rangers official injured in the encounter as Asif.

He said that the Gulshan-e-Buner is a known hotbed of terrorists’ activity and that the raid was carried out by the Rangers and police on a tip off from intelligence agencies.

“The terrorists killed in the operation are TTP leader Amirullah Mehsud and two other TTP members, Zaman Khan and Ziaullah,” said Ali, adding that a hand grenade, one 9mm and one TT pistol, one dagger and ammunition was recovered.

He claimed that Amirullah Mehsud was involved in grenade attacks on Shia worship places in the Quaidabad area and also confirmed that the terrorists were planning to carry out a major attack on Ashura.
