Five suspected Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorists, including their alleged commander in Karachi, were killed and two Rangers personnel were injured in a clash between security forces and miscreants in Keamari on Wednesday.
Rangers raided a house on information that militants were planning to target the city’s Expo Centre with a bomb.
During the search, militants fired at Rangers personnel and hurled hand grenades. The clash left TTP’s purported Karachi commander Ilyas Kashmiri and his four accomplices dead. A large cache of arms was reportedly recovered from the premises, comprising hand grenades, assault rifles, bullets and ammunition.
