LAHORE: Four suspected terrorists were killed in an encounter with personnel of Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab police in Saggiyan area near Lahore late on Monday night.

Ammunition and explosives were also recovered from them.

Following the Outfall Road blast, the law-enforcement agencies speeded up the action and investigations.

In an armed encounter with the CTD personnel, four terrorists were killed and three to four others managed to flee under the cover of the darkness.

The terrorists are said to belong to proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

The sources said the CTD had prior information regarding arrival of six to seven terrorists from Lahore to Sheikhupura.

According to police officials, the saboteurs were planning to hit police officers.

The initial investigations revealed that the truck used for the activity turned out to be stolen and it was laden with apricots.

A body was retrieved from under the rubble at the blast site. The deceased has been identified as Amanat Ali. The 45-year man was a resident of Gujranwala.

The injured of the blast are being treated at Mayo Hospital.
