Acting on a tip-off, the body was recovered from the Tral area of the district, a police official said.

He added that the slain terrorist, apparently a foreign national, was killed in an explosion which took place while explosives were being assembled in a hideout.

The identity of the slain terrorist was being ascertained, the official said.
