Facilitator of Afghan Daesh commander arrested from Peshawar: Police

Shiite News: An alleged facilitator of a commander of the militant Islamic State (IS) group in Afghanistan was arrested from Regi Lalma area here, police said Tuesday.

The suspect, Musa, has close links with Afghanistan-based Abdullah alias Cheeta, a commander of Daesh (the Arabic acronym for IS), said Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Saifullah as he produced the suspect before media.

The officer said the suspect was wanted by the local police for various crimes and was arrested during a search operation in Regi Lalma on Monday night.

The alleged criminal belonged to an inter-provincial criminal organisation, said the DSP, adding that further investigation about the suspect is underway.

The director general of the Intel­ligence Bureau, Aftab Sultan, informed the Senate Standing Committee on Interior earlier in February this year that IS was emerging as a threat in the country because several militant groups had a soft corner for it. He named Lashkar-i-Jhangvi and Sipah-i-Sahaba Pakistan as examples.

Though IS and Afghan Taliban were rivals, the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) coordinated with it, he added.

The interior ministry has been denying the presence of IS in Pakistan, saying that it was an Arab organisation. But Mr Sultan said the IB had busted a big IS network after several members reached Punjab following Karachi’s Safoora Goth carnage in May.
