In a major action, the Counter-Terrorism Department has busted a network of the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan in Quetta, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

According to the CTD spokesperson, the TTP network was being operated from Afghanistan. He said that during the operation, an alleged terrorist, Abdul Hadi alias Amarullah, was arrested.

The arrested terrorist is an Afghan national who was involved in an attack on the police mobile in Quetta on December 26.

The CTD police recovered a hand grenade and a pistol from his possession.

During interrogation, the arrested terrorist also revealed the names of his six other accomplices who are Afghan citizens, the spokesperson added.

It may be mentioned here that security forces in an intelligence-based operation had also busted banned TTP network and arrested 17 terrorists including a terror commander from Karachi a day earlier. The terrorists were involved in target killings, ransom and dacoity cases.

These terrorists were planning to collect funds from traders for ransom, attack political and religious parties’ leadership to create law and order situation in the country.

The arrested terrorists were brought to Pakistan by banned TTP in disguise of madrassa students.

The terrorists were part of TTP network between 2007 to 2014 and were involved in attacks on security forces and NGOs at different places.
