Afghan intelligence agency is backing TTP chief. Rehman Malik

ISLAMABAD, Dec 22 (INP): Former interior minister and Pakistan People’s Party leader Rehman Malik says Afghan intelligence agency is supporting Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Chief Mullah Fazlullah.

In an interview, he said the fugitive TTP chief found refuge in Afghanistan whenever he wanted. “I have repeatedly been saying a foreign hand is involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan,” said Malik.

He said that he had also briefed the Senate that the Afghan intelligence agency was backing militant commander Faqir Muhammad and TTP chief Mullah Fazlullah.

He said nobody was ready to accept his claim about presence of Punjabi Taliban but it was good to see that the Punjab government was now taking action against terrorists.
