NOWSHERA: On Monday, the Mardan Counter-Terrorism Department foiled a terrorist attempt by arresting a terrorist in the Rashakai region here and recovering explosives from him.
Mohammad Yaqoob was a core member of the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Afghanistan, official sources reported. They said the CTD, acting on a tip-off, apprehended the outlaw while standing with a blue shopping bag in his hands near the Shereen Kothe town.
They said there were three detonators in the bag, and six metres of prima rope.
The officials said the investigation was ongoing and it was anticipated that substantial details would be obtained from the terrorist.
