TTP (Ahrar) High-Profile Assassin Arrested
RAWALPINDI: The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Police claimed to have arrested a suspected terrorist with links to a militant group and recovered explosive material and three detonators from his possession.
The arrest of Sabir, a resident of the Kunar province of Afghanistan, was made during a raid in Morgah, said a spokesman for the CTD.
He said the suspect had links with Jamaatul Ahrar and carried a bogus national identity card with the address of Dhoke Syedan, Rawalpindi.
He said the suspect was monitoring army personnel and renowned politicians to target them.
A senior official of the CTD added that though the suspect was not on the wanted list, he had got commando training.
Jamaatul Ahrar, a breakaway group of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), had claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on former Punjab home minister Shuja Khanzada. However, law enforcement agencies later arrested the suicide attacker’s facilitators who belonged to the TTP.
