At least five officials of Gilgit Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) were martyred in an exchange of fire during a midnight raid in Diamer’s Chilas district on Tuesday.

According to the details, five policemen including an inspector martyred during the raid while an equal number of CTD officials were wounded in the exchange of fire.

Two others were also killed in the exchange of fire between the police and suspects.

Police said they were conducting a raid when the suspects opened fire killing five members of the CTD. SSP Diamer told Geo News an investigation was underway to determine who was responsible for the crime.

Caretaker GB chief minister Mir Afzal Khan has directed IG Gilgit Baltistan to submit a report of the incident. “The suspects were involved in trading weapons, apart from terrorist activities,” he said.
