A terror attempt was barred as soon as the police recovered a bomb from a suspect in Peshawar on Friday morning. The suspect was stopped during snap-checking near Machni Gate and a homemade bomb was recovered from his bag.
Police immediately arrested the suspect while his partner managed to escape from the scene. Later, bomb disposal squad was called in to neutralise the bomb.
Security remained strong in the city a day after at least seven policemen and a passerby sustained injuries in a roadside blast near Warsak Road.
