In a statement, the state police spokesperson, ASP Mansir Hassan, stated that upon receiving a distress call, a joint response team of the police, the military and the civilian joint task force pursued the bandits.

Mr Hassan added that the bandits abandoned five victims they had already kidnapped in the gun duel that ensued.
