“A group of Taliban fighters including some suicide bombers had planned to target Baharak district headquarters early Sunday, but police thwarted their malicious design after killing the suicide bomber on the spot,” Wadoud told Xinhua.
The armed militants, according to the official, had planned to conduct a suicide bombing next to the gate of Baharak district headquarters early morning to enable others enter the compound and to occupy the building and kill anyone inside, but the conspiracy has been foiled.
“Police have launched search operations to locate and arrest the fleeing terrorists,” the official added.
Taliban militants who are active in parts of Baharak district and adjoining Wardoj and Jarm districts are yet to make comments. Enditem
