USS Neverdock and Online News reported:
Security agencies in a raid at the residence of the house of prominent doctor here have recovered 6 suicide jackets and explosive materials.
Security agencies early Monday morning raided the house of child specialist Dr Mohammad Rasool and arrested him along with his wife and son and recovered 6 suicide jackets and explosive materials from his house.
The security agencies had received information that Al-Qaeda leader Mohammad Yousaf was residing at the Doctor’s house. However he fled prior to the raid.
The security agencies have started interrogations from the arrested doctor and his family.
Security forces arrested a local doctor and the wife of an Arab Al Qaeda explosives expert in a pre-dawn raid on a house here, triggering protest from Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) which termed the arrests as “American agenda,” officials and eyewitnesses said.
“We foiled a subversive act,” Dir Lower District Coordination Officer Dr Attaur Rehman told reporters as JI activists blocked Chakdara Road to protest the raid, which also resulted in the arrest of paediatrician Dr Muhammad Rasool. Four suicide jackets, a Kalashnikov, a rifle and explosives were seized in the joint raid that included both paramilitary and army soldiers, Rehman said.
“We had actionable intelligence that Muhammad Yousaf alias Abdur Rahim, a Saudi Arabian national, was in the house but he fled before we conducted the raid,” he added. A night watchman of the area where the raided house is located was also arrested for questioning.
Daily Times learnt that the wife of the suspected Arab and his child were also taken into custody at an undisclosed location by authorities. A colleague of Dr Rasool’s said the man had not been involved in politics and had been a regular member of preaching groups. “I am surprised he was arrested in connection with Al Qaeda.”
