Pakistan Army has identified and intelligence agencies have identified 27 Wahhabis-allied Deobandi takfiri terrorists of Taliban who were involved in ferocious massacre of schoolchildren and female teachers in Army Public School Peshawar on December 16, 2014.


The Pakistan military on Thursday said the (Deobandi takfiri) terrorists behind the tragic attack on the Army Public School (APS) in Peshawar have been taken into custody.

At a news conference in Rawalpindi, the chief military spokesman said nine out of 27 terrorists involved in the December 16 massacre had been killed while 12 others had been arrested, six each in Pakistan and Afghanistan. “Most of the 27 terrorists have been identified as Pakistani nationals,” Director General (DG) Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj-Gen Asim Bajwa said.

Talking to reporters, the DG ISPR said the APS attack – which left over 150 people, most of them children, dead – was ordered by the fugitive chief of Deobandi Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Mulla Fazlulla. Fazlulllah, he added, selected Umar Amir to supervise the attack.

“Asif alias Haji Kamran was then made commander. He later formed two different groups to execute the plan,” the military spokesman revealed.

Maj-Gen Bajwa said six suicide bombers were selected for the APS attack. One of the facilitators, he said, included the (Deobandi) imam of a (Wahhabis-allied) Deobandi mosque who hosted three of the attackers for a night near the targeted school. Other Deobandi takfiri terrorists involved in the attack included commander Atiqur Rehman, Kaif Qari, Mudassir, Taj, Misbah, Hazrat Ali, Sabeel alias Yahya, Mujeebur Rehman, Saddam, Khurshid and Jabbani.

“The main culprits, including Mulla Fazlulla and Umar Amir, are still hiding in Afghanistan,” he added.

The DG ISPR said killing Mulla Fazlulla or repatriating him to Pakistan if he was captured alive is Islamabad’s ‘number one demand’. “This point is being raised in every meeting [with Afghan authorities].” He added that they had received a response on the matter from across the border and were ‘optimistic and hopeful’.

Bajwa said coordination with the Afghan government had improved in recent months. He thanked the Afghan government for eliminating communication gaps.
“The terrorists were initially taking advantage of the communication gap,” he said. “Now the coordination has improved.”

According to the DG ISPR, the busted terrorist gang was linked to several other major terrorist incidents, including the Peshawar Meena Bazaar, Rawalpindi and Tarnol attacks.
