Karachi, Sep 26 (UNI) Three most wanted terrorists, belonging to an outlawed militant organisation, blew themselves up after police raided a house in southern Pakistan today, officials said.
''Police raided Baldia town in the port city of Karachi after a tip-off that three terrorists belonging to banned outfit Lashkar-i-Jhangvi were holed up in a house,'' officials told mediapersons.
They hurled five hand grenades at the police before blowing themselves up with explosives.
Karachi city police chief Wasim Ahmed confirmed that three people were killed after one of them blew himself during raid while another abducted local transporter was also killed in the suicide blast.
Police found a body tied under the debris of the gutted house, which was identified as that of Shaukat Afridi. The deceased was kidnapped for ransom some three months ago. Militants were demanding five million dollars for his release.
