Explosive planted near Cantt police station Bannu defused


PESHAWAR: The Bannu police on Thursday foiled a terror bid by recovering at least 10 kg explosive planted near the Cantt police station by unknown miscreants. Police said 10 kg explosive material including ball bearings were recovered that were planted near the Cantt police station. The explosive planted for carrying out a subversive activity was later defused by the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS). Police said if the explosive material, God forbid, had exploded, a big scale destruction could have taken place. After the recovery, police cordoned off the area and started a search operation to arrest the perpetrators involved. APP
