Peshawar, Dec.8 (ANI): Pakistan's premier intelligence agency, the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), has secretly moved its base from Peshawar to another safe location following last month's devastating bomb attack on its office in the provincial capital.

According to sources, the ISI has shifted its office within the cantonment area after its building was completely destroyed in the terror attack last month in which 13 people were killed and over 15 suffered grievous injuries.

An official, who is privy to the issue, disclosed that the ISI offices have been shifted to a safe house located at the Artillery Road. He said the offices of Chief of ISI Major General Sajjad Ali Khan Wazir and his deputy Brigadier. Hanif Khan have also been shifted to the 11th Corps Headquarters.

Another official, who also confirmed the shift, while pointing fingers toward foreign hands in last month's blast, claimed that the explosives used in the attack were not available in the country.

"It is only available with US army operational units in Afghanistan," The Nation quoted the official, as saying.

Security in and around the offices of Military Intelligence, Air Intelligence and Special Branch has already been enhanced, and all roads leading to these installations have been barricaded. (ANI)
