Karachi/Lahore—One of the two suicide bombers who planned to attack Shikarpur Imambargah, has confessed to have arrived in Pakistan from Afghanistan, a report compiled by intelligence agencies said.
The suicide bombers had been trained in a Tehrike-e-Taliban Pakistan camp for a month in Nangarhar province.
Investigators said a terrorist named Abdullah brought the two suicide bombers from Afghanistan to Pakistan on the second of Ramazan. Prior to the blast the last meeting took place in Wadh.
On September 12, the group of four men travelled from Wadh to Shikarpur. The two attackers put on their suicide jackets at the Sindh Balochistan border. At 5am on September 13 they resumed their journey to Shikarpur. However while one of them blew himself up at the gate, the other was arrested alive by police. Sources said that a network of terrorists was functioning in Wadh, Balochistan.
Terrorists in the area include Arif, Muaz, Sajjad alias Dilawar, Hafeez and Abdullah.
Meanwhile, Punjab’s Counter Terrorism Department has claimed to have arrested four terrorists affiliated with Daesh terror network in Lahore.— Agencies
