The Interpol on Monday sought details from Karachi police and Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of the Belgian citizens involved in terror activities in the city.
In a letter to Additional I.G. Police Karachi and DIG Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) via the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Interpol Brussels chapter has sought the list of the citizens of Belgium involved in Karachi terror acts.
Earlier in March, CTD DIG Omar Shahid sent a report to the Sindh IGP and requested him to initiate action, with help of relevant authorities, for the arrest of an alleged target killer of a political party in Belgium.
He asserted that he had written a letter to Inspector General of Police Mushtaq Mahar, seeking action for mutual legal assistance from Belgium to get the custody of Saleem alias Saleem Belgium alias Saleem Baloch.
The CTD DIG informed the Sindh police chief that Saleem was responsible for running teams of target killers and there was evidence he was involved in three incidents of terrorism besides a collection of money for funding terrorist activities.
The DIG said in his letter that CTD personnel recently arrested MQM-L terrorist Wahid Hussain alias Saudagar.
During interrogation he made startling revelations, he said. “Wahid Hussain alias Guddu is holding dual nationality of Pakistan and Belgium”, the letter read.
The CTD in its letter further said that the terror network comprises of 30 to 40 members.
“Those staying in Belgium also collecting funds from the Pakistani community, which used for terrorism acts in Karachi,” according to the letter.
