Official sources said that the suspected militants belong to a banned outfit operating in the Khyber Agency adding that they were first shifted to the Khyber Teaching Hospital for treatment but were referred to the LRH for further treatment.

The three alleged militants in injured condition were brought by six people in an ambulance to the LRH Peshawar where police arrested all of them.

Some sources claimed that these militants might have been injured in a gunbattle with the security forces or due to infighting and were brought to the hospital for treatment.

The police officials present on the scene refused to give details about the arrests and took away the suspects in a police mobile.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Saleem Aman said that a few injured persons were brought to the hospital but they were not admitted for treatment. — Online
