LEJ-Terrorist-Malik-IshaqThe chief of notorious terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) and vice president of terrorist Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP) Malik Ishaq alias Ishaq Dhobi has been released from Chohang Jail Lahore, sources said.

Malik Ishaq had been arrested by the former PML-N Punjab government along with over 100 other terrorists

of Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi as a part of crackdown against these outfits after deadly bombing in Quetta that killed over 180 members of Hazara Shia community in first two months of this year.

The operation had been launched after strong calls for crackdown against Punjab based militants from federal government and civil society. The incumbent Chief Minister Najam Sethi was also a very strong proponent of the crackdown.

The former Punjab government had arrested 152 religious activists linked with the banned outfits under section three of the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) after joint raids by intelligence agencies in different districts of the province including Bahawalpur, Chiniot, Multan, Rahimyar Khan, Rajanpur, Bahawalnagar and DG Khan.

“Under MPO, maximum period of detention is 90 days so we could not keep them detained legally after the expiry of this period,” Amjad Hussain, spokesman of the Punjab government said.He said some of the detainees had been released on the orders of courts while rest completed their detention period.
