Suicide attack accused arrested in Charsadda

CHARSADDA: Police have arrested an accused involved in several terrorist activities, including launching an attack on former minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao, District Police Officer (DPO), Charsadda, Feroz Shah Khan, said on Friday.

Accused Dawood, hailing from Afghanistan, was apprehended by the police when he was found lying unconscious in the fields of sugarcane, Feroz said while talking to media men here.

He said two extremists were killed on Thursday night in an exchange of fire with the police when they launched an attack on a police check-post. Two other extremists, the DPO said, managed to flee.

On a tip-off on Friday morning that injured Dawood was lying unconscious in a sugarcane field, the police took him into custody and shifted him to the orthopaedic ward of a local hospital, the DPO added.

Feroz said a large contingent of the police had been deployed outside the hospital.

A service card of the Afghan foreign ministry was among the documents found from the pocket of Dawood, he said.
