Lahore: Pakistani police on Thursday claimed to capture six terror suspects, including two Taliban commanders, in this eastern city.

According to a senior police officer, they along with the officials of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) raided a house in the Shahdara area of Lahore after receiving a tip-off and arrested the six terror suspects a few days ago.

Explosives, suicide jackets, grenades and jehadi literature were recovered from the arrested persons.

Investigations revealed that two of the arrested men are commanders of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan who had fought security forces in the Charbagh area of the restive Swat valley.

The commanders were identified as Abdur Rehman and Muhammad Talha.

"Both had been trained in Afghanistan and they were assigned to target important personalities and installations along with their four facilitators," the police officer said.
