Islamabad: Pakistani security forces reportedly busted a network of suicide bombers, local media reported Saturday.

Local media quoting security officials reported that the security agencies conducted a series of operations during the last week after getting intelligence reports about the presence of a network of suicide bombers.

The operations were conducted in the aftermath of a suicide bombing at a check post in the Jamrud area of Khyber district in the country's northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on January 19, which killed three policemen.

The banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack.

Following the attack, security forces started an operation to trace the perpetrators and facilitators.

Modern technology, geo-fencing and the closed-circuit television footage revealed that a terrorist of the TTP identified as Umar was involved in the suicide attack, said the reports.
During an intelligence-based operation on January 23, the security forces arrested two terrorists, who gave a tip to the forces to conduct two more operations on Friday leading to the arrest of four suicide bombers, added the reports.

The security forces also confiscated a big cache of weapons, ammunition, and explosive materials from the terrorist group.
