NORTH WAZIRISTAN: Security forces on Tuesday killed a key suspect over the murder of four women vocational trainers in North Waziristan tribal district with the police warning the people against unnecessary movement and participation in public meetings and programmes amid reports about the growing activities of the proscribed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and its allied groups in the area.

In a statement issued here, the Pakistan Army’s media wing, ISPR, said Hassan alias Sajna, a commander of the TTP Hafiz Gul Bahadar Group, was killed during an intelligence-based operation in Mirali area.

It said the terrorist was involved in the killing of four women vocational trainers in Mirali area on Monday.

“The killed terrorist was involved in terrorist activities against security forces and peaceful civilians, including IED attacks, kidnappings for ransom, targeted killings and extortion, and recruitment of terrorists,” it said, adding that a cache of arms was also seized.
