ISLAMABAD- Army chief General Raheel Sharif rushed to Kabul today to deliver a warning to Afghan authorities to take decisive action against sanctuaries of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), or else Pakistan would go for ‘hot pursuit’, reported a private TV channel.

General Raheel is traveling to the Afghan capital after security agencies found evidence that the Peshawar attack, which killed 141 people, including 132 children, was planned inside Afghanistan by the Mullah Fazlullah group.

The army chief will meet his Afghan counterpart and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, as well as the ISAF commander to present evidence of the Peshawar massacre’s linkage with TTP sanctuaries in Kunar and Nuristan province. A security source told the channel that Pakistan would want immediate action against TTP hideouts. “If Afghan authorities fail to act this time, we will explore all options, including hot pursuit,” cautioned the source.

Another official, however, hoped that unlike the Karzai administration, the current government in Afghanistan would stop supporting anti-Pakistan elements.

The official disclosed that General Raheel, during his talks in Kabul today, would seek the extradition of Mullah Fazlluah, whose group claimed responsibility of the dastardly attack on Tuesday.
