TEHRAN (AFP) Pakistan played a role in helping Iran arrest its most-wanted militant Abdolmalek Rigi who was seized onboard a flight from Dubai, Islamabads ambassador to Tehran Mohammad Abbasi said on Wednesday. I must tell you that such action cannot be carried out without the cooperation of Pakistan. I am happy that he has been arrested, Abbasi told a media conference at Islamabads mission in Tehran. Without elaborating, Abbasi said details of Pakistans help to Iran in arresting Rigi would be revealed in two or three days time. Rigi, the head of shadowy Sunni rebel group Jundallah (Soldiers of God), was captured on a flight from Dubai to Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday. Irans Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said the entire operation to capture him was carried out by Iranian agents and no other regional country was involved. An airport official from Bishkek told AFP on condition of anonymity on Tuesday that the passenger plane Rigi was travelling in was forced to land on Iranian territory by two Iranian jet bombers. Irans official Press TV, quoting an unidentified source speaking on condition of anonymity, added on its English-language website that Rigi was seized along with one of his deputies. It said they were captured after their plane was brought down by security forces in an airport in the Iranian Persian Gulf city of Bandar Abbas. On Wednesday, Abbasi said Rigi was arrested outside Pakistan. Based on what was shown and reported, he was arrested somewhere between Dubai, Afghanistan and Central Asia. Moslehi told reporters on Tuesday that the militant had been at a US military base in Afghanistan just 24 hours before he was nabbed. He also said that Rigi had been issued an Afghan passport by the Americans, travelled to Europe and met a NATO military chief in Afghanistan, claims which were later dismissed by Washington as totally bogus. Rigi was Irans most wanted fugitive and accused of launching from Pakistan deadly attacks in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan. Rigis group Jundallah claims it is fighting Tehrans rule to secure rights for Sunni Baluchis who form a significant population in Sistan-Baluchestan province bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan. Abbasi said Pakistan too had been working to arrest Rigi, adding Islamabad has regularly handed over to Tehran members of his group, including his brother Abdolhamid who is now on death row in Iran. Abbasi said on Wednesday that no one can perceive that Pakistan is working against Iran. The arrest of Rigi shows there is no place in Pakistan for enemies of Iran, Abbasi said.
