12-year-old leads police to 12 bombs

A 12-year old boy, Aqil Shah, on Friday led Swabi Police to the discovery of 12 self-made bombs hidden in an uninhabited area, helping foil a mega sabotage attempt. Zaida police SHO Syed Maluk Shah said the boy told his brother Zakir Shah about the bombs, who later informed police about the situation, telling them his brother had spotted suspicious material in Shahmansoor area. Police said torrential rain had washed away the mud covering the bombs, which had probably been dumped there by terrorists for use in sabotage activities in the area.
District Police Officer Muhammad Ijaz Khan said officials had found a total of 12 bombs. “However, our search for more bombs in nearby areas continues. Police officials have been tasked with searching the surroundings and furnishing a report immediately. There might be more such bombs dumped by the criminals,” he said. To a question, he said the criminals wanted to target the 500KV transmission line from Tarbela Dam to Sheikh Mohammadi grid station in Peshawar. Khan said the district police have been protecting the Tarbela Dam-Sheikh Mohammadi transmission line under a well-planned strategy and officials regularly monitored the supply line.
