Secret agencies have issued an ‘alert’ to the police that militants opposed to the government-Tehrik-i-Taliban peace talks are planning terrorist activities in Islamabad, Peshawar and Quetta, according to police and interior ministry officials.
The little known group Ansarul Hind, would claim responsibility for the attacks.
Their intelligence sources, who raised the alert on April 3, said the TTP leadership had wished its informal affiliates to create the so far unheard of group.
“Law enforcing agencies will be the main target of the terrorists, and in the case of their failure, any other official installation or public place.”
“TTP will choose the targets and the informal groups under its umbrella will provide support to the Ansarul Hind activists with weapons and other materials,” said an official.
In this way they will claim denial of any involvement while ensuring that their ‘cease fire’ remains intact.
