The Punjab Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) claimed to have arrested nine members of different banned organisations, including a member of the intelligence agency Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), belonging to different defunct organizations during 38 intelligence-based operations (IBOs) throughout the province, DAWN reported.

According to a CTD's spokesman, 40 suspects were interrogated during the IBOs.

Accordingly, seven FIRs were registered against the suspects.
