Peshawar, 27 July, (Asiantribune.com): Pakistani security forces arrested nine boys trained for suicide bombing and other terrorists activities across Pakistan, besides seizing 14 vehicles equipped for suicide attacks.

Mingora Operational Commander Brig Tahir Hameed said the operation Rah-i-Rast was under way in Swat to secure the remaining pockets of resistance. ‘The security forces have achieved major successes during the search and clearance operation in Swat.’

The 14 vehicles prepared for suicide attacks, 35,000kgs of explosives, 50 computers, hundreds of guns, over 100 pistols, thousands of rounds and electronic goods seized from militants and their hideouts were displayed at the press briefing.

He said the forces had recovered a large quantity of arms and ammunition, vehicles and furniture of schools and banks which militants had looted.

He said normalcy had been restored in 95 per cent of the district, including the city of Mingora, and the operation would continue till the elimination of militants.

A 15-day ban from Monday has been imposed on rickshaws in the valley and owners have been asked to get stickers for their vehicles from police stations.

Brig Hameed said the overall law and order situation was improving. He said several children brainwashed and trained for suicide attacks had been captured.

He said terrorists had deprived the children of an opportunity to get education and their parents had handed them over to the security forces.

He said arrangements were being made to enroll them in schools with free board and lodging and give them monthly scholarship.
