PESHAWAR, 9 September: Passengers on a bus at Warsak Road in Peshawar foiled a terror bid on Friday by noticing a bomb in the bus and catching hold of a suspect who placed the bomb beneath a seat of the vehicle.

The bomb disposal squad arrived at the spot and defused one kilogram bomb. Police said the passengers noticed a suspect bag under a seat of the bus and on inquiry, the owner of the bag tried to flee. However, the passengers nabbed the suspect and handed him over to police.
