Taliban asked to send suicide attackers to Afghanistan
KABUL (PAN): The Taliban's Quetta Shura has ordered its shadow governors to get suicide attackers out of Pakistan to show the world that there are no militant sanctuaries in the country, a security official said on Tuesday.
An Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officer has told Maulvi Abdul Hakim, the head of a militant centre, Sheikh Abdul Rauf and Sheikh Fazal, both senior members of the movement, to send suicide attackers to Afghanistan, the source told Pajhwok Afghan News on condition of anonymity.
He said the ISI official had told Taliban leaders in Quetta to check all religious schools to ensure suicide attackers were trained. In this regard, Qayyum Zakir ordered Taliban's shadow governors to bring attackers from Pakistan to Afghanistan.
The deputy head of the National Directorate of Security (NDS), Ziauddin, told reporters on Monday the assassination of High Peace Council chairman, Prof. Burhanuddin Rabbani, was planned outside of Afghanistan.
The ex-president was assassinated in a suicide attack at his residence in the posh Wazir Akbar Khan area last week.
