LAHORE: Senior commander of the banned militant outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Dr Arshad, accused of killing four intelligence officials near Jhelum on November 11, has been arrested from Waziristan, sources told The Express Tribune. Whether it was North or South Waziristan, however, was not revealed.
Dr Arshad, along with four aides, has been shifted to an undisclosed location for further investigation.
The militant commander was suspected of killing four Military Intelligence (MI) officials and a civilian on November 11, Pir Chambal hills, near Jhelum.
The victims — Major Afaq Ahmed, Hawaldars Mazhar Abbas, Nike Fayyaz Ahmed, Mehmood Ahmed Shah and civilian Afsar — were said to be on a spy mission to gather information on militant hideouts in Pir Chanbal’s mountains, when they were intercepted.
