Two policemen were killed,another 11 injured in rocket attack in Kohat

At least two policemen were killed and eleven others, including three policemen, were injured on Monday evening in a rocket attack in the Main Bazaar of Kohat. According to initial reports, at least two rockets were fired by unknown miscreants, one of which landed in Paracha market, the city’s main business centre and the other some distance away a few hours before a Muharram procession was due to pass through the area. The rocket landed in the bazaar during its peak hours. “Two rockets were fired from Darra Adam Khel. One slammed into the market and the other landed near it,” Commissioner Kohat Sahibzada Anis told the media. Rescue teams rushed to the attack site and moved the injured to a hospital while a heavy contingent of police rushed to the scene and cordoned off the area. Owing to the Muharram processions, security was at high alert and authorities had made stern security arrangements to avoid any mishap. Security arrangements were further tightened in all key cities of the country following the terrorist attack. Two suspects have been arrested so far.
