Two terrorists belonging to the banned Pakistani Taliban outfit involved in last month’s attack on Karachi police office were killed in an encounter by Pakistan’s Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) personnel. This information was given in media reports on Tuesday. Heavily-armed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorists stormed the Karachi Police Chief’s Office (KPO) in February. Four others, including three terrorists and two police constables, were killed in the attack.
According to police, 19 other people, including policemen and rangers, were injured in the incident and are undergoing treatment. According to the news of the newspaper ‘Dawn’, Pakistan’s Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) received information about the arrival of TTP terrorists in Karachi on Sunday night. Four terrorists who came on two motorcycles were intercepted by CTD personnel on Monday morning. Instead of stopping, they opened fire, triggering an encounter. Two terrorists were killed in the encounter and two others surrendered.
According to the news, a ‘jacket’ used in the suicide attack was recovered from them, which has been deactivated. The slain terrorists have been identified as Aryadullah alias Hasan and Waheedullah alias Khalid alias Huzaifa. Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon said, “Both terrorists were the main conspirators of the KPO attack.” The minister said, “They had helped the terrorists who carried out the KPO attack…” According to the report, A week before the attack on the Karachi police office, three suicide bombers came to Karachi by bus and stayed at the house of slain terrorist Waheed in Ehsanabad.
The suicide jackets, weapons and other weapons were brought to Karachi via a truck from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa tank area. The report quoted Memon as saying that the four terrorists had come to Karachi to carry out another attack as they felt that they had not achieved their objective in the KPO attack. The attack was a major embarrment for the provincial government as the Karachi police chief’s office and the Sadar police station are located on the main Shahrah-e-Faisal road, where several strategic installations including the Pakistan Air Force Faisal Base, a five-star hotel, are located. Earlier on January 30, a Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up during afternoon prayers at a mosque in Peshawar, killing 101 people and injuring over 200.
