Lahore: Five Baloch Republican Army (BRA) terrorists were arrested in Pakistan’s Punjab province on Thursday, foiling their bid to blow up a railway track in the region, police said. 

According to Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) officials, it received a tip-off that some BRA terrorists planted IED on a railway track in Rajanpur, nearly 400 km from Lahore.
