LAHORE - Advisor to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik has said Bait Ullah Mehsud sent the terrorists from Waziristan and the attack on the Police Training Centre Manawan was also planned there. He said foreign hand in the terrorist attack could not be ruled out but so far there was not such evidence. He expressed these views while addressing a press conference here at Pakistan Rangers Headquarter (Punjab) on Monday. Other senior officials including DG Rangers Punjab Maj Gen Yaqub Khan, IGP Punjab Khawaja Khalid Farooq, CCPO Lahore Haji Habib-ur-Rehman and other officers of the concerned departments were also present on the occasion. Earlier, talking to a TV channel Rehman Malik had said that militant Jihadi outfits and foreign elements could be behind the attack, while adding that it was a part of the terror wave which begun from NWFP. Speaking on the occasion, Rehman Malik said terrorists were residing in the Fata and enemy countries were supporting them financially, that was the reason why terrorists possessed precious vehicles and sophisticated weapons. He said eight people, including six police officials and two unidentified civilians, were killed in the incident and four suspects were taken into custody, out of which one terrorist was captured from outside the centre. He said one of arrested terrorists had arrived in the city some 15 days back and was living in a rented house. The accused is a Pushto speaking Afghan national who cannot speak Urdu. He said the government was considering imposing ban on short letting of residence to the unknown people. About the other three suspected terrorists, he said the things recovered from them were similar to those recovered from the Afghan national. He said senior officers were assigned an inquiry of the incident and many facts would be surfaced after that. He claimed that police and all agencies concerned played their role well in countering the terrorist strike and their role should be appreciated. Rehman was of the view that there was no chance of drone attacks on Balochistan and said Manawan attacks must not be politicised. Earlier, talking to the reporters at the Police Training School Manawan after the Police, Rangers and Army personnel successfully completed the operation against the terrorists, Rehman Malik said the attack on the Manawan Police Training Centre was similar to the Mumbai terror strike that left about 170 people dead. He said it is an attack on the country and its sovereignty by those forces, which want to destabilise Pakistan. There should be unity at the political and all other fronts similar to 1965. He further said Pakistan had been hit by a wave of terrorism, adding that the terrorists were trained and it was a planned attack. Malik also admitted the building of the training centre was not secure and said these buildings were not designed to prevent terror strikes. But maintained that the success achieved against the terrorists was because the forces were alert to face such situation. He said the government had information about possible terrorist attacks at police installations, which was passed on to the concerned quarters and added that the law enforcement agencies were fully alert and reached the spot within no time after they were called to counter the terror incident. He said Police, Rangers and Army personnel made a well-coordinated effort, which resulted in a success and minimum human loss in the 4 hours long operation, for which he congratulated COAS, DG Rangers, Corps Commander, IGP and other concerned officials.
