The raids are being conducted across the city by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) police to track down the suspects associated with Daesh, Afghans and members of banned outfits.

A police source told Dawn at least five terror suspects, who were involved in various tasks to promote Daesh and hire people for it, were under interrogation. He said hate literature, CDs and other material had been seized from the Daesh people and hundreds of others, belonging to an ethnic community from KP, and Afghans.

The source further said the traders association of the Urdu Bazaar had also cooperated with the law enforcers to recover hate literature.
