Islamabad, Nov 18: In a desperate attempt to stop Pakistan military offensive in South Waziristan, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has threatened to poison Pakistan's water resources if it does not halt its military operation against Taliban.
The letter which was faxed to Directorate of Military Lands and Cantonments in Rawalpindi on Nov 17, said that 200 litres of poisonous materials has been obtained by the Taliban to contaminate water sources and reservoirs in Rawalpindi and Chaklala.
Rafiq Adil Siddique, the CEO of the Rawalpindi Cantonment Board, said the Directorate of Military Lands and Cantonments has taken 'effective security measures' following the threat.
As a precautionary measure the boundary walls of the tube well sections have been raised and tube-well operators and valve men have been instructed to keep the doors of the office closed.
The six wards in the area has been divided into four areas which will be under the supervision of engineers, supervisors, directors, tube-well operators and valve men.
