Three Tehrik-i-Taliban militants have been killed by police in Pakistan’s Kyber Pakhtunkhwa province, officials said on Thursday.

They said police’s counter terrorism team raided a spot at Shahpur area of Peshawar district, based on an intelligence input on Wednesday night.

Officials confirmed that three terrorists were killed during an exchange of fire, while others managed to escape from the spot.

The killed included wanted militant Hizbullah, while the identify of other two is yet to be ascertained, police said.
