Peshawar/IBNS: As many as four terrorist attacks rocked Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region of Pakistan in the last 48 hours, media reports said.
However, security personnel thwarted one of the attacks on a check post in Peshawar on Thursday.
The province has seen a surge in terrorist attacks — from improvised explosive device blasts to suicide bombings — since late last year when the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) ended its ceasefire with Islamabad, Geo News reported.
In the latest attack, which took place late at night, eight terrorists were sent running for their lives when police personnel fought back as the militants tried to attack the Riaz Shaheed Police Post in Peshawar’s Sarband area.
Superintendent of Police (SP) Cantt Waqas Rafiq told Geo News as a result of police remaining “high alert,” the cops could thwart the attack as terrorists tried to target the checkpost at night.
