KARAHI: Another group of women working for terrorist group Daesh, also known as Islamic State, has been exposed in Karachi.
Suspected terrorist Kamran Gujjar, who was arrested from Punjab, has revealed during the investigation that his wife and sister-in-law are working in Karachi for Daesh.
He said that both are experts in brainwashing and they are collecting funds for the terrorist organization in the name of a welfare organisation.
Kamran also revealed that several other women have also joined their group. After these revelations, security agencies have started conducting raids in different parts of the metropolis to arrest members of the group.
In last December, police reported that a 20-member group of female supporters of Islamic State (IS) is active in Karachi. These women brainwash young girls, provide funds for IS and also arrange wives for the terrorists of IS.
Earlier on Sunday, Sindh Islamic State (IS) head Umar Kathiwer was arrested. He was involved in Safoora bus carnage and other terror incidents. He was arrested upon the information provided by Safoora bus attack suspect Saad Aziz.
Sources revealed that Umar Kathiwer had established an organized terror network in Sindh during 2011. He is an expert at Arabic language and funds terrorists. Umar’s duties included facilitating al-Qaeda terrorists belonging to Arab countries.
Later, Umar Kathiwer joined IS and his wife also runs IS’s women wing in Sindh. More high value arrests are also expected upon the information provided by Umar Kathiwer.
Authorities in South Asia are concerned about the rise of the Daesh group in a region already beset by home-grown insurgencies fighting to topple local governments.
The Pakistani government says that Islamic State, a group founded in Syria and Iraq in 2013, does not have a credible presence in the country.
Several smaller militant groups and factions of the Pakistani Taliban have, however, pledged allegiance to Islamic State and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi since 2014. NNI
