Presence of half a dozen terrorists feared in sit-ins
In a letter to the Ministry of Interior, the security and intelligence agencies said some five to six terrorists disguised as protesters have entered the sit-in with an intent of foul play.
It is said the terrorists, who had arrived from Khyber Pakhtonkhwa, had planned to target and inflict major damage to the protest of Pakistan Awami Tehreek and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
In a media talk after meeting the opposition jirga sent by the government for negotiations, PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi said interior ministry must not spoil the environment.
He said it was better if both the sides – government and their protesting force – refrain from issuing hard statements that may hamper the talks’ process.
