Pak agencies still clueless about escaped high-profile Jundullah terrorists 4 months on

Karachi, Oct 20 (ANI): Despite a passage of four months, Pakistan's law enforcement agencies (LEAs) have not yet been able to gather any cohesive information regarding the three high profile Jundullah terrorists, who escaped from the City Courts on June 19, 2010.

One of the fleeing suspects- Shah Murad- was killed by the police chasing party in Jodia Bazaar, while the other three- Murtaza alias Shakeel, Shakeeb Farooqi and Wazeer Muhammad- managed to escape, the Daily Times reported.

Earlier, six armed men had gotten four of their accomplices freed from police custody after they attacked the security personnel with hand grenades in the City Courts.

The four freed men were being tried, among other cases, for the suicide attack on an Ashura procession in December last year that killed more than 40 people.

It is noteworthy that LEA personnel have accused the City Courts police for not informing them that high-profile terrorists were being brought to the courts premises for hearing.

They have also revealed that the terrorists were in contact with their wing leaders through mobile phones in the prison.

Jundullah (Soldiers of God) is engaged in activities against Tehran's Shiite ruled Sistan-Balochistan province bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Iran maintains that last year's terror attack targeting the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRG) was carried out by perpetrators hiding inside Pakistan, and has asked Islamabad to 'clarify' its stance over reports regarding its links with the banned terror group.

Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki had said that the Sunni rebel group, which carried out the deadly bombing, was based in Pakistan.

Pakistan, however, dismissed allegations of supporting the terror group, saying the attack was aimed at spoiling its ties with Tehran. (ANI)
