Militants torch fleet of NATO supply tankers in Peshawar

By One India

Peshawar, Nov 20 (ANI): Unidentified armed militants launched an attack on a workshop in Peshawar, torching a number of NATO supply tankers parked there.

Rescue sources revealed that a bomb- weighing 2.5 kilogram- was also found from the crime site, which has been defused, Geo News reported.

According to sources, the workshop is located at a Ring Road leading to the Pak-Afghan Torkhum Border, where armed militants attacked, and subsequently set the NATO supply tankers on fire.

Police, which arrived on the scene shortly after the incident, said that the militants succeeded in fleeing from the spot.

According to the police, at least six militants launched the strike, while eyewitnesses claimed that as many as 24 assailants carried out the attack, and also tortured the security guard outside the workshop.

While at least ten oil tankers have been completely burnt in the attack, fire fighters have come along the fire tenders, and are trying hard to tame raging blazes.

This is the third attack on the NATO supply line in this area. (ANI)
