He was also accused of killing 50 people

A terrorist, who was allegedly involved in the attack on the Inter Services Intelligence’s (ISI) Faisalabad office, has been killed in an exchange of fire with police, the Counter Terrorism Department said on Saturday.

The deceased terrorist, identified as Ghazanfar Nadeem, was purportedly involved in killing more than 50 people. His accomplice was also killed in the gun battle.

At least 34 people were killed and 90 injured when a bomb planted in a car exploded at a CNG station situated adjacent to an ISI and Military Intelligence office in Faisalabad on March 8, 2011. Around 35 vehicles were destroyed in the blast that created a 10-foot deep crater at the site.

In a statement, the CTD said that the operation was conducted in a Chiniot area on intelligence information. Different explosive devices and modern equipment were found at the site.

Efforts are under way to identify another terrorist killed in the operation.

The head money of Nadeem was Rs5 million and he was absconding since 2011, officials said and added that different institutions were searching for him.

Nadeem, alias Khalid Habib, was known by different names, the CTD said and he was allegedly a mastermind in the terrorism based on religious hatred.
