Pakistan security forces on Saturday claimed to have arrested three suspected militants, including a senior Taliban commander, in a raid in the restive southwestern province of Balochistan.

Acting on a tip-off, the security forces raided a building in Harnai district and arrested the three suspects, police said.

A police official confirmed the arrests and said that the militants were shifted to a secret location for interrogation.

Weapons and explosives were also recovered from the militants, who were apparently planning to carry out a terrorist attack.

Pakistan has increased intelligence-based operation against militants following the Taliban attack last month on an army-run school in Peshawar which killed 150 people, mostly children.

More than 1,800 suspected people have been arrested in the countrywide swoop since the Peshawar attack.
