Islamabad: A Pakistani minister has said that Dr Shakil Afridi, who helped the US locate Osama bin Laden, is not safe in Peshawar jail.

Minister for Information Iftikhar Hussain once again urged the government to shift detained Dr Afridi to any other province.

Hussain said that the government should shift its prisoner from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as Bannu jail-like attacks could occur in other jails of the province, the Daily Times reports.

He said that there was a serious threat of attack on Peshawar jail due to Dr Afridi’s incarceration there.

Hussain also expressed grave concern over terrorist attacks on security forces from Afghanistan.
