Islamabad on alert after terror incident

ISLAMABAD: The federal capital was put on alert on Tuesday after incidents of terrorism and a warning issued by Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad of more terrorism-related incidents.

A policeman was shot dead and two others were injured at a checkpoint on Tuesday. On Monday night, a gunbattle took place in which two militants were shot dead, before two gunmen riding a motorcycle opened fire on a police checkpoint in the vicinity of the Karachi Company police station.

“This was not an incident of dacoity or theft. Terrorists opened fire on them [police officials]. This is a signal for us that terror incidents have started taking place in Islamabad,” he said while speaking to journalists after the martyred police official’s funeral prayers.
