Karachi on high alert after circular by intelligence agencies
KARACHI: Intelligence agencies have warned of a major terrorist activity in Karachi within the next 48 to 72 hours.
According to a terror alert issued by intelligence agencies on Friday, militants are likely to use water bowsers filled with liquid explosives for the attack. No further details have been given.
Law enforcers in the metropolis have also been directed to remain vigilant and take measure to avoid such an attack.
The reports come just days after Pakistan Army launched the much-awaited targeted operation against militant outfits in Southern Punjab following a deadly attack in Lahore’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal park last month. The operation is being carried out by civil and military law enforcement agencies, including Rangers, police and Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) against ‘hardened criminal and ferraris’.
“These terrorists flee from different parts of the country as a result of successful operations Zarb-e-Azb and took refuge in remote areas of Rohjan, Kache in district Rahim Yaar Khan,” military’s media wing ISPR said.
