PESHAWAR/MIRANSHAH - Banned terror outfit, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, has disassociated itself from the terror attacks in Peshawar and Quetta, which left at least 19 people dead and dozens wounded.

According to TTP Spokesman Shahidullah Shahid, they are not involved in Friday’s blasts.

He added if any Taliban group was found involved in these blasts, TTP would deal with them strictly.

Both TTP and its peace committee met in North Waziristan Agency and chalked out future strategy for further dialogue. The committee reached Akora Khattak from North Waziristan Agency.

TTP Spokesman Shahidullah Shahid from an undisclosed location said the outfit had nothing to do with the two deadly blasts in Peshawar and Quetta as it had announced a ceasefire.

He said they considered such blasts as a violation of the ceasefire, so they not only distanced themselves from Friday’s blasts but also condemned them. He said all the groups operating under the umbrella of the TTP were bound to follow orders of Taliban Chief Mullah Fazlullah.

Peace talks were underway in North Waziristan when the two deadly blasts hit Peshawar and Quetta weeks after the militia declared one-month ceasefire against the government.

At least nine people were killed and over 45 other were wounded in a suicide blast in Peshawar on Friday noon. Minutes after the Peshawar blast, Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, rocked with a powerful blast which hit the security forces’ vehicle. As a result, at least 10 people were killed and over 30 others injured.
