Peshawar, Apr.21 (ANI): The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has denied its involvement in the recent terror strikes across the North West Frontier Province (NWFP), and instead blamed the controversial private security firm-Blackwater for the bloodshed.
The banned extremist outfit also blamed the Awami National Party (ANP) and the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) for the violence.
"We never strike in cities and public places as we know only civilians become victims of such actions," TTP's self-proclaimed spokesperson Azam Tariq told The News over telephone from an undisclosed location.
Tariq said that Tuesday's terror strike in Peshawar in which over 25 people were killed was the handiwork of Blackwater, which is being provided covert support by the two political parties in order to appease the US.
"In order to prolong their rule and appease the United States, the two political parties with support from Blackwater carried out the terrorist attack in Peshawar," he said. (ANI)
