Islamabad: Pakistani police on Wednesday arrested a man who made threatening calls about carrying out bomb attacks on Interior Minister Rehman Malik and his home, officials said.

Tahir Rasheed, a resident of Faisalabad in Punjab province, was arrested by a police team from Islamabad.

Police said Rasheed was identified as the man behind the threatening calls that prompted authorities to evacuate the Interior Ministry here on Monday.

A case was registered against Rasheed under the provisions of the Telegraph Act, a police spokesman said.

He was nabbed following a probe conducted by a special police team.

Deputy Inspector General of Police Bin Yamin said stern action would be taken against persons involved in making such hoax calls.
