Pakistan’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has informed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that the plan to attack Police Training College Hostel in Quetta was made in New Delhi.
According to a report in ‘The Nation’, ISI Commander Brig Khalid Farid, on Tuesday told a group of top civil and military leaderships including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif that the Quetta attack plan was made in New Delhi and handed over to Afghan NDS-RAW network which assigned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi operating on Afghan soil to execute it.
Brig Khalid Farid also alleged that all recent terrorist attacks had links with Afghanistan’s intelligence agency National Directorate of Security (NDS) that is running training camps in Spin Boldak, located close to Chaman on Pak-Afghan border.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had called this meeting to save the provincial metropolitan city, in particular, and the entire Balochistan, in general, from the onslaught of religious extremists, terrorist outfits and foreign-sponsored agents.
The meeting was also attended by Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri, Governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai, Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan, National Security Adviser Nasser Khan Janjua, ISI DG Lt-Gen Rizwan Akhtar, Commander Southern Command Lt-Gen Amir Riaz, MI DG Maj-Gen Nadeem Zaki Manj, DGMO Maj-Gen Sahir Shamshad.
