LAHORE: Intelligence agencies have found copy of a Sindh University professor from the scene of Lahore’s factory area gun battle, sources told ARY News on Saturday.
Professor Abdul Jabbar, copy of whose NIC was found from the scene, is the father of Naureen Laghari, the Liaquat University of Medical and Health Science (LUMHS) student who went missing from her hometown Hyderabad in February.
Naureen had messaged her brother through a friend’s Facebook profile that she has reached the land of Khilafah (caliphate). Police, however, had said that she was traced coming to Lahore through a bus.
Reports suggest that Naureen Laghari herself has been arrested during the encounter.
Military said Saturday it had thwarted a plot to launch a major terror attack in Lahore on Easter Sunday, after an army raid in the city that killed a suspected militant.
Facebook blocked her account
Naureen left her Hyderabad home on February 10 and was missing since then but her brother received a message from another girl’s Facebook profile in March that the girl has reached some ‘Land of Khilafah’.
“Brother, I am Naureen, I hope yo all are fine, I am fine and happy too, I have contacted you to inform you that by the grace of God, I have migrated to the land of Khilafah and hope that you all will someday migrate (to this land),” read the message reportedly sent by Naureen.
SSP Hyderabad Irfan Baloch had told ARY News that the girl took a bus ticket last month and left for Lahore and expressed fear that the girl was in contact with extremist groups.
“She held extremist views and Facebook had blocked her account for the same reason,” added the SSP.
