ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Saturday said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police and intelligence agencies had identified the three suspects involved in the Peshawar suicide bomb blast incident and within a couple of days they would be arrested.

In a video statement, Sheikh Rashid appreciated role of the investigation organisations, KP police and intelligence agencies.
