According to CTD officials, the terror suspects were arrested during a raid near Pasrur Road. They were identified as Muhammad Nawaz and Ghulam Mustafa.
Arms and explosive material were recovered from their possession, a CTD official said, adding the held suspects used to collect donations for a terrorist outfit and target law enforces.
