Lahore, Mar. 4 (ANI): As many as sixty suspects have been rounded up for questioning for their alleged role in the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team on Tuesday, a Pakistani TV channel has reported.

Pakistani Police has detained many suspects here. Bomb disposable squad recovered dozens hand grenades, explosive materials, five suicide jackets, Kalashnikovs, and many bullets from eleven separate places in the city.

Police teams have also seized three cars and a rickshaw believed to have been used by the terrorists during the ambush, Geo TV reported.

Speaking to reporters here, Prime Minister Gilani's Interior Advisor Rehman Malik said the terrorists came from three sides to trap the Sri Lankan convoy.
