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
