A Pakistan Army officer was martyred while disarming an improvised explosive device (IED) in Mohmand tribal district on Wednesday.

Another member of the bomb disposal team, Sepoy Rehan, was critically injured in the incident. Security forces had detected an IED in the Mohmad Gat area of the district and had moved to neutralize the threat.

Captain Zarghaam Fareed belonged to Sargodha and was unmarried.

Army and other security forces routinely carry out counter-insurgency operations in the district after earlier clearing the area from militant presence.

Intelligence-based operations and other kinetic actions by security forces have significantly reduced the threat of enemy action in the district and its surrounding areas. The army maintains a permanent presence in Mohmand to ensure the security of the district and to check infiltration from Afghanistan-based militants.
