LOWER DIR - Fortune on Monday saved a minor girl from becoming a suicide bomber who escaped her kidnappers and came in the hands of security forces at Islam Darra check post on Balambat Maidan road in Lower Dir. The Lower Dir police presented the 8-year-old girl Suhana before the media who revealed that terrorists forced her to carry out a suicide attack on a security check post at Islam Darra. The girl, who seemed frustrated and frightened, told while answering questions that she belonged to the Hashtnaghri area of Peshawar. She said that she was a student of class 3 in a private school at Peshawar and was picked up by two men on Sunday while on her way to school. Our school is closed on Fridays while it remains open on Sundays, the girl answered a journalist when asked as to why she was going to school on a public holiday (Sunday). Imran, her brother is a student of class 5 in Peshawar, according to the would-be suicide bomber. She said the kidnappers took her to a house and offered her some biscuits. When I ate the biscuits, I became unconscious, Suhana said, adding that early in the morning two men and two women boarded her in a car. I was again made unconscious as I could not realise what is happening around me, the girl said. Giving more details of her ordeal, she said as they reached near a check post at Islam Darra the kidnappers wrapped a suicide jacket around her body. But it was too tight and they put off it. Then they tried to wrap another jacket and as were preparing for that she ran away taking advantage of the situation, she added. The Dir Lower District Police Officer Saleem Marwat while briefing local journalists said that security forces informed them about the girl. He said the girl after escaping from her kidnappers hid herself in nearby bushes where she was seen by personnel of the Frontier Corps. The DPO said police and security forces instantly searched the area and recovered a suicide jacket from a nearby place. Ten kilograms of quality explosives were used in the jacket, the DPO said, adding that police in Peshawar had been contacted to search out the family of the girl. He said raids were being conducted for the two men and women. We will inform the media about any further development, the DPO added. The girl who according to her, belonged to Hashtnagri Peshawar, was speaking in an accent particular of rural areas of Swat, Bunir and Dir. Apparently, she was presented in haste before the media and was unable to pick all question of the journalists and give proper answers. Some of her answers raised more questions and doubts than satisfying the original queries but reporters were not allowed to ask further questions. The girl was given in the custody of the security forces for further interrogation. Agencies add: Although her intentions could not be confirmed independently, it was the first time such a young girl has been reported carrying explosives in the country and could signal a disturbing new tactic for the Taliban and other militants. Suicide attacks carried out by women and children are very rare in Pakistan but militant groups have frequently used teenage boys. On December 26, 2010, a burqa-clad female suicide bomber struck a UN food distribution point and killed 43 people in Khar, the main town in the restive Bajaur bordering Afghanistan. Nearly 4,500 people have been killed across Pakistan in attacks blamed on Taliban and other extremist networks based in the tribal belt since government troops stormed a Lal Masjid in Islamabad in 2007.
