Hosts Pakistan and Bangladesh team to have T20 series in first phase. The first match of this series is to be played at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on 24 January, but just 3 days before that, 3 terrorists have been arrested from Lahore. Punjab Police has arrested 3 terrorists with weapons in an operation based on intelligence.
Pakistan's Punjab Police has arrested the three terrorists from Harunabad bypass. Police have also recovered weapons from these terrorists. Police have arrested 3 terrorists named Imran, Muhammad Abid Sohail and Muhammad Raza. According to Pakistan's Counter Terrorism Department, Bangladesh media has written that police recovered 7 detonators (ammunition bomb), safety fuse, 2 boxes of ball bearings, 1 electric battery, 1 electric switch and ammunition from two bags.
The CTD police have started the investigation by registering an FIR against all these. Let us tell you that before the first T20 International match between host Pakistan and Bangladesh at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on January 24, Punjab Police had conducted a campaign in view of security, in which these terrorists have been caught. It is being told that about 10 thousand policemen are being put under security in the international T20 match. Punjab Police is working hard to provide security to the players and spectators in all the three matches.
Let us tell you that there was a terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus outside Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore in 2009, in which many players were injured. Teams have been reluctant to go to Pakistan since then. Although internationals have been played in Pakistan in the recent past, but still the big country is not ready to go to Pakistan. After Sri Lanka, Bangladesh team is visiting Pakistan, but some of its players and support staff have refused to go to Pakistan and said that it is dear to them.
