During an intense exchange of fire with terrorists, at least four brave law enforcement agencies personnel and two civilians embraced martyrdom. The martyred LEAs personnel fought gallantly against the terrorists.

“Law enforcement agencies deputed on security offered stiff resistance and forced the attackers to repulse,” the ISPR said in its statement.

Security forces repulse fire raid
