Punjab: A Rocket-propelled attack (RPG) attack was reported late night on Sarhali police station at Tarn Taran district of Punjab near the Pakistan border. The incident took place around 1 am on the intervening night of December 9 and 10.

According to reports, the Punjab Police claimed on Monday to have arrested four people who reportedly helped two other people carry out a rocket-propelled grenade attack on a police station in Tarn Taran on December 9. The two attackers are still at large.

The attack is believed to be carried out by Pro-Khalistan groups by seeking aid from the ISI. There were 10 policemen claimed to be in the adjoining building at the time of attack. However the police station sustained a low-intensity blast.

Forensic teams are on the way rushing at the spot. DGP Punjab is also reaching the spot later this morning.

Similar attack was done in Mohali earlier.
