Islamabad/Xinhua: The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of police foiled a major terror bid on Tuesday in Pakistan's eastern Punjab province and arrested a suicide bomber during an operation, local media and officials said.

The CTD officials told local media that an intelligence-based operation was carried out by the law enforcement agencies near the main railway station of Lahore, the provincial capital of Punjab province.

During the operation, the member of a banned terrorist organization was arrested, said the CTD officials, adding that a suicide vest and a hand grenade were recovered from the terrorist.

The suspected suicide bomber has been shifted to an unknown location for further investigation.

Police said the arrested terrorist was planning to carry out terror activities in the province and was waiting at the city's railway station for his accomplice to join when the police rounded him up.

"We have launched a search operation in the city to arrest the militant's accomplice as well," said an official of the CTD, adding that according to the preliminary investigation, the suspect at large was also a suicide bomber.
