ISLAMABAD: Pakistani intelligence agencies have warned that the Taliban have made plans to kidnap former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, who is currently being held at his private residence here after being arrested in several criminal cases.
The intelligence agencies have issued an advisory that the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan might attempt to abduct Musharraf while he is being taken from his farmhouse to court, Geo News channel reported today.
The channel quoted its sources as saying that the Taliban was working with other jihadi groups to kidnap Musharraf.
The intelligence agencies directed security agencies to ensure strict surveillance and tight security to foil the plans of the militants, the report said.
Shortly after Musharraf returned to Pakistan from self- exile last month, the Taliban announced that they had formed a special squad of suicide bombers and snipers to target him.
A car rigged with a huge amount of explosives was recently found near Musharraf’s farmhouse on the outskirts of Islamabad, which was declared a “sub-jail” after he was arrested last week when a court revoked his bail in a case over the detention of dozens of judges during the 2007 emergency.
