Islamabad, May 5 (ANI): Media reports suggests that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chieftain Hakeemullah Mehsud may be behind the failed Times Square bombing plot.

According to The Dawn, nearly two months back Hakimullah had written a letter to Dr. Aafia Siddiqui's sister assuring her of all help and cooperation.

In the letter, Hakimullah reportedly told Aafia's sister that the TTP would give a memorable response to the US for detaining her and falsely charging her in terror cases.

Hakimullah also purportedly said in the letter that Pakistani leaders would also face a fitting response for failing to save Aafia, the alleged Al-Qaeda terror suspect.

The Pakistani neuroscientist has been charged for firing at American investigators in Afghanistan in July 2008, and is scheduled to be sentenced on May 6.

A New York court has found her guilty on charges related to the attempted murder and assault of US nationals and US officers and employees in Afghanistan. (ANI)
