Lakki Marwat: Terrorists attacked a checkpost in Pakistan's Bannu district on Tuesday which left at least a policeman dead, media reports said on Friday.

They said that the policemen deployed at the post were performing their duties as usual when they came under firing attack.

“The policemen returned the fire and a gun battle continued for some time,” they maintained, adding that a head constable, namely Sardar Ali Khan Marwat, embraced martyrdom as a result of the attack.

They told the newspaper that the attackers fled the place taking the advantage of darkness, adding additional force was sent to the area and a search for the fleeing attackers was launched.
