As many as 11 militants were killed by security officials in Kurram Agency on Sunday after they allegedly tried to enter Pakistan from Afghanistan.
The incident occurred in Sapperkot and Para Chamkani in Kurram Agency.
Pakistan often accuses Afghanistan-based terrorists for the attacks on its soil.
In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks in various parts of Pakistan, people are in a state of deep anguish and pain. "Deployment at all sensitive government installations has been increased and the operation in and around localities of shrines in the province is also being conducted".
Police have also taken a man into custody who had rented his house to handler Anwarul Haq of the Lahore blast.
Action against militants continued in the country as Pakistan Army destroyed four training camps of Jamaatul Ahrar on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border late Friday night, Aaj News reported. A CTD spokesman said the department received information that eight JuA terrorists had planned to attack a shrine in Multan.
At least five militants were arrested during the fresh search operation in different areas of Mamond tehsil, security sources said, adding that the militants have been shifted to an unknown place for interrogation.
Senior police officers were among 13 people killed when a Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up during a protest rally outside Pakistan's Punjab assembly in Lahore last Monday.
Two security personnel were also killed, reports the Dawn.
After a suicide bomber martyred 88 persons at shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar on Thursday and wounded over 200, both Pakistani government and the army have demanded off Afghanistan to hand over terrorists and take action against banned outfits.
