    BANNU: Militants on Monday morning attacked a police station located on the outskirt of Bannu city where at least nine persons including three policemen and an Army soldier were killed, Geo News reported.

    According to police sources, the incident took place at Kakki police station located at a distance of 14 kilometers from Bannu city where at least 20 cops were present when the station was ambushed.

    Militants besieged the police station with hand grenades and then opened fire that killed five persons who had come out of the mosque after offering prayers. The violent exchange of fire continued for at least one and a half hour in which seven security men were injured including an SHO. An Army soldier, Rahimullah also embraced martyrdom during the combat with militants.

    The wounded personnel were shifted to DHQ Hospital where three succumbed to their injuries, raising the toll to nine.

    Police told that four suicide attackers blew themselves when they were surrounded by the additional contingents of security forces that were called in from the Bannu city. One suicide attacker aged 12 managed to flee from the scene. Security forces cordoned off the area to search the missing attacker.

    The banned militant outfit Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed the responsibility of the attack.
