Islamabad, Jan.15 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that the security forces have thwarted extremists' plans of attacking the country's Parliament.

Malik said the police have recovered a suicide jacket from a remote cave in the Margalla Hills, which was to be used for the attack.

He claimed that a terror suspect has also been arrested by the security forces from the same cave.

Malik, however, parried questions regarding reports of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) top commander Hakimullah Mehsud being killed in a US drone strike on Thursday.

He said security has been beefed up in all the major cities, including Peshawar and Lahore, in the wake of the heightened terror threat, The Dawn reports. (ANI)
