The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) on Monday claimed to have killed one suspected terrorist and arrest four others allegedly belonging to banned Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LeJ) from Karachi.

CTD in-charge Raja Umar Khattab, while revealing the details, said the arrests were made following a heavy exchange of fire in Korangi area of the metropolis.

“As a result of the exchange of firing, one terrorist was killed while four others were captured,” Khattab told DawnNews.

“This was a Lashkar-e-Jhangwi hideout where the operation was conducted,” Khattab added.

“There was large amount of explosive material in the hideout so the Bomb Disposal Squad has been called in,” he concluded.
