According to CTD, police were deployed at all entry and exit points of Punjab’s capital to curb the threats of more attacks looming after the Lahore blast.
Right as police approached a vehicle to search, armed men inside the vehicle opened fire. Police effectively responded, and in retaliatory fire, four terrorists were killed, while three others managed to flee the scene in the dark of night, spokesperson of CTD added.

Meanwhile, a heavy contingent of police has been called in the area to launch search operations for apprehending the absconded accomplices of the killed terrorists.
