Cheema further informed that 753 illegal immigrants and 92 proclaimed offenders were arrested by police during various raids in Quetta.

Law enforcement agencies launched a crack-down against illegal immigrants in the aftermath of repeated acts of terrorism in the country.

Cheema said operations are being conducted under Operation Raddul Fasad and scores of suspects have been apprehended in Balochistan.

"We are trying to ensure coordination among all law enforcement agencies," he said.

He informed that during three raids conducted by police and frontier corps five terrorists were killed since January this year. A large catche of arms and ammunition was also recovered from their possession
