Five facilitators of Bacha Khan University attack arrested: DG ISPR

Peshawar: Pakistan army spokesperson Lt-Gen Asim Bajwa on Saturday said five of the terrorists and their facilitators involved in Bacha Khan University attack have been arrested and their identities ascertained.

Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said, “we killed four attackers and apprehended their five facilitators and raids are being conducted to arrest another facilitator, his wife and niece,” Bajwa explained during press briefing.

Lt-Gen Asim Bajwa said the terrorists did their preparations near Torkham checkpost area in Afghanistan, then they crossed the border using public transport and travelled to Mardan —looking like "common people".

He also presented a map of Mardan and Charsadda showing the alleged movement of the attackers.

"After entering Mardan, these terrorists were received by Adil and Riaz," the DG ISPR said while showing the location of the "two men's houses/hideouts on the Mardan-Charsadda road, where the terrorists were kept".

"Adil is a labourer. A few days ago he was doing some masonry work in the university, and made a map of the university so he could explain it to the attackers. And Adil is the one who helped the attackers figure out their way into the university."

These facilitators helped the terrorists embark a rickshaw and travel to nearby Imbrahimzai University, where they dismounted, from there they travelled to Bacha Khan University, the director general of the military's media wing said.

Ameen Rehman has also been identified as one of the terrorists and his credentials confirmed with NADRA, Bajwa maintained.He said four terrorists, Ali, Usman, Umar and Abid, who were trained in Afghanistan, crossed into Pakistan from Torkham Border Crossing like ordinary travellers and used public transport to reach Mardan.

“Adil is a mason, who also worked in the university as labourer. He drew the map of university and remained involved in planning the attack.” “Noorullah, who bought an auto rickshaw, transported terrorists to sugarcane fields near Bacha Khan University in Charsadda.”

Bajwa said that weapons used by the terrorists were from bought from Darra Adam Khel.

He said Adil and Riaz helped terrorists to buy weapons. However, Adil’s wife and niece facilitated them (terrorists) to fetch weapons from one place to another destination. They hid weapons in their burqas at check posts.

Asim said that Umar, the main commander, who was in Afghanistan, called a Pakistani reporter during the attack. The phone call was also played before media.

The DG ISPR said that progress has also been made in identifying the finance trail, which he said will be shared once the investigation is complete.

The DG ISPR called upon the nation to play its role to help eliminate terrorism from the country.

The arrested men were also presented before media.
