Dead bodies of Pakistani security officials recovered two days after suspected TTP militants abducted them in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Around ten military personnel including a captain and two police personnel including an inspector CTD have reportedly been killed in Pakistan in the last 48 hours.

Two days after three paramilitary Frontier Corps personnel in Pakistan’s Tank district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province were kidnapped by unidentified militants, the dead bodies of two of them have been recovered. On 9th July, it was reported that three Pakistani military and police personnel were abducted by suspected Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants from a checkpoint in the Tank district.

Now, two bodies have been recovered from Shaheed Murid Akbar area of Kadi Hyder in Tank. The two victims are identified as Constable Habib Khan, a resident of Tank district, and Frontier Corps employee Inamullah from Benti in Kadi Marwati, Tank.

These soldiers were driving from the Sor Qamar FC post to Tank Bazar when militants stopped them at a checkpoint between Kot Azam and Kot Qila. The militants abducted the three personnel and turned over their ATM and identification documents to the civilian driver, whose car they had hired.

In a shocking turn of events, around ten military personnel including a captain and two police personnel including an inspector CTD have reportedly been killed in the last 48 hours.

On Wednesday, the Pakistan Army and counterterrorism police killed three militants in a joint operation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The clashes broke out during an intelligence-based operation in the Hassan Khel area of Peshawar. During the exchange of fire, two Pakistan Army personnel, including a captain, as well as several officers from the Counter Terrorism Department were killed. In a statement, Pakistan’s Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) said that four security personnel were slain during the conflict.

So far this month, 14 Pakistani security personnel, nine militants, and eight civilians have been killed.
