Peshawar: Pakistan police on Saturday arrested
a wanted Afghan terrorist from a refugee camp in the country`s
northwest while three Taliban fighters, including a top
commander, were nabbed in the restive Swat district.

Afghan terrorist Gul Rehman alias Gullo was arrested
at the Azgharo Banda refugee camp in Hangu district of
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

Five kilograms of explosives and fuses were seized
from him, police official Islam Uddin told PTI.

Security forces nabbed two Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan
militants, including commander Sher Ali, at Bodigram village
in Swat district.

Acting on a tip-off that Ali was present in the
village, troops surrounded the area and arrested the
militants.

Ali was the "revenue secretary" of the Taliban in
Swat and was responsible for raising funds and disbursing
salaries to militants, officials said.

Ali is the brother of slain commander Bakht Farzand
and was wanted by police for several heinous crimes.

Another Taliban fighter named Kifayatullah was
arrested during a raid in Nawa Kaley village of Swat valley.

In separate developments, three militants surrendered
to security forces at Totano Bandi in Swat while police
arrested 51 suspects with arms and ammunition during a search
operation in Hangu city and adjacent areas, officials said.
