The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) has claimed on Thursday that they have arrested three Afghan terrorists with a map of Adiala Jail, a hand grenade, and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) with them.

Rawalpindi City Police Officer (CPO) Khalid Hamdani stated that police recovered automatic weapons and ammunition from the terrorists, after which police and other law enforcement agencies launched a search operation near the Adiala jail area.

Former Prime Minister Imran Khan is currently in Adiala jail, serving sentences in multiple cases. CCPO Rawalpindi has stated that the terrorists are from Afghanistan.


Earlier on November 7, 2023, police found a suspicious bag laden with an explosive device near Adiala Road in Gorakhpur, Rawalpindi, just one kilometre away from the Adiala jail, ahead of a hearing of the cipher case.
