DERA GHAZI KHAN: Punjab Rangers on Tuesday killed two suspected militants in an exchange of fire in Dera Ghazi Khan. Two accomplices of the deceased managed to escape from the scene. The incident reportedly occurred at Sakhi Sarwar Road as the four suspects were headed towards Fort Munro on two motorcycles.

Search is underway for the remaining accomplices of the militants. On February 17, Security forces killed three terrorists during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Dera Ghazi Khan.
