This is the second attack on the Jhangi police checkpost in the last two months. According a spokesman for Punjab police, 15 to 20 terrorists took advantage of the darkness of the night to attack from different sides. The terrorists wanted to seize the Jhangi police checkpost and take the officials hostage. 

The terrorists used rocket launchers, hand grenades, laser light guns and other modern weapons in the attack. 

However, the terrorists were forced to flee due to the strong resistance by the policemen and running out of ammunition.
