The police, led by Sadar Circle DSP Hafiz Muhammad Adnan, retaliated the firing of the terrorists. After this, the terrorists managed to escape from the scene due to darkness. No loss of life was reported in the attack, but the building of the police station was damaged.

As soon as the incident was reported, District Police Officer (DPO) Muhammad Shoaib also reached the said police station.

The police had reports about the presence of terrorists in the adjoining areas of Yarik which was why the security of the above-mention police station was put on high alert.
