A report by the Punjab government has stated that terrorists have started planting Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) in cement blocks which may be used to target the police and army personnel, reported Express News on Friday.
The report said that the bombs planted in cement blocks are hard to find and are detonated through a cell phone.
In wake of the report, the Punjab Home Ministry ordered inspection of all companies manufacturing cement blocks and ordered immediate action to be taken against terrorist groups.
The ministry has also ordered the use of IED jammers during VVIP movement in the province.
Earlier during this month, the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) had defused two bombs on the main GT Road in Peshawar – both of them planted in bricks and camouflaged among the footpath blocks.
