Former Pak MNA nabbed with Mehsud's letter to ex-ISI official

By Super Admin

Islamabad, June 28 (ANI): Former Member of the National Assembly (MNA) Maulana Shah Abdul Aziz has been apprehended with a letter written by Tehrik-e-Taliban (TTP) chief Baitullah Mehsud to a former ISI general, strengthening the notion that links between banned militant organizations and the ISI are as strong as ever.

Aziz was picked up by intelligence operatives after his meeting with Lal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz.

Interior Ministry sources said that Mehsud, in his letter, has thanked the ISI official, who is known for his pro-Taliban views, for opposing the Swat military operation and defending the philosophy of the Taliban.

Aziz was detained for investigation after he was found travelling with Fidaullah, a top Taliban leader who is believed to be the mastermind of the recent suicide bombing in Islamabad and other adjacent areas, The News reports.

Security officials are still probing the issue. The ISPR has denied having any information on the matter.

"I have no information on this subject," the ISPR DG, General Athar Abbas said. (ANI)
