Four militants killed in Dera Bugti operation



At least four suspected militants were killed by Frontier Corps (FC) personnel on Thursday during an operation in Balochistan’s Dera Bugti area, a private news channel reported.

According to a FC spokesman, security personnel were carrying out an operation in Chap Garh, 40 kilometres ahead of Dera Bugti, when they were fired upon by militants.

Security personnel retaliated with gunfire, following which four miscreants were killed.

Weapons, ammunition and bombs to blow up railway tracks were also recovered from their possession.

Balochistan faces an insurgency by Baloch separatist groups while al-Qaeda factions are also operational in the province.
