PESHAWAR - The outlawed Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan’s wing Jamaatul Ehrar has released the details of their operative who purportedly carried out the deadly suicide bombing at the Wagah Border on November 2.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, spokesman for the militant group, told a private TV channel Thursday that 25-year-old Hanifullah alias Hamza carried out the attack that killed 60 people returning from the ‘flag-lowering’ ceremony at the Wagah Border gate, a display of military pageantry which attracts thousands of spectators and tourists every day.

The militants also released a photo of the alleged bomber.

Sources told that Hanifullah belonged to a bordering town in Mohmand tribal agency.

Ehsan further claimed that the banned outfit would also release a video of the attack, which they claimed to have carried out in retaliation to a military operation against Taliban militants and tribesmen in the remote Fata region bordering Afghanistan.
