KARACHI: Police claim to have arrested a senior member of Al Qaeda who was allegedly supplying explosives for terrorist activities in Karachi.
“Baloch Colony police have arrested Adil Azeem Sheikh and found a Kalashnikov and two hand-grenades in his possession,” SSP South Munir Ahmed Sheikh said on Friday.
He said at a press conference the militant was the ‘right hand’ of Talat Hussain, the ‘supervisor’ of Al Qaeda’s Sindh and Balochistan chapter. He brought explosives from Balochistan and provided them to terrorists in Karachi. The SSP claimed that Sheikh had received training in Afghan province of Kunar.
Sheikh told interrogators that Talat Hussain had asked him to carry out bombing at the homecoming caravan of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in Karachi in 2007, but he refused to do so. The task was then given to “Azeem and Rehan” who have since been missing.
According to the SSP, Sheikh also disclosed that Al Qaeda had carried out the attack on the ISI office in Sukkur. Fifteen to 20 militants took part in the attack to avenge the detention of several Al Qaeda men by the intelligence agency in Hyderabad, Sukkur, Nawabshah and Dera Ghazi Khan.
