Three burqa-clad terrorists were gunned down on Sunday morning when they targetted the house of a village council head near the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar.

Terrorists attacked the house of Union Council Nazim (village council head) in Budah Ber village of Peshawar. The three terrorists - clad in burqa - were killed on the spot in counter-firing.

Nazim Mohammad Fahim told Geo News that three terrorists attacked his guestroom early Sunday morning.

Police have surrounded the area.

Pakistan has witnessed a fresh wave of violence since Oct 5. Over 200 people have been killed in terror attacks, including massive bombings, in Peshawar.
