PESHAWAR (Dawn):  Four suspected militants were killed and 50 others were rounded up in a targeted raid in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Swabi district.

The operation, being carried out by police and security personnel, was still in progress.

Station House Officer of Parmoli Police Station, Haji Khan, told Dawn.com that the raid was launched after security personnel received a tip off that militants had occupied the Shakoli primary school in Swabi’s Khanpur village.

When police and security personnel raided the school, the militants returned fire and an hour-long gun battle resulted between the two sides.

A huge quantity of explosive material and other arms and ammunition was also recovered during the raid, officials confirmed.

In another incident in KP, a security forces’ vehicle was severely damaged in a blast in Matta Mughal Khel area of Charsadda.

No loss of life was reported.

Swabi is the hometown of the deputy emir of the outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan Khalid Haqqani and attacks in the district have increased since he took charge.

In Peshawar’s Sarband area, police arrested a three-member gang who were impersonating as police and Intelligence personnel to deceive general public and allegedly extorted money from them.

The gang operated in various areas of the city and also in the Cantonment area.

Moreover, police also recovered one vehicle, wireless sets, bogus service cards and police uniforms from their possession.
