  • by

All the militants who were killed on Thursday’s synchronised attacks in Lahore might be from Afghanistan or Indian nationals as their fingerprints did not match with National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) Pakistan, said an official report here on Saturday.

After collecting all fingerprints of the killed militants were sent to NADRA for their identification but after the one-day searching by the NADRA no record regarding them could be found.

It is evident from NADRA’s search that the militants were not locals and might be foreigners.

According to the collected information, the DNA report of the militants will be released within a few days by the government while the police will also make their images public along with information about the militants, the SSP operation said.
