Pak authorities arrest a high-profile terrorist

Security agencies have arrested almost all members of terrorist`s gang.



Islamabad: Pakistani law enforcement
agencies have arrested a "high-profile terrorist" who wanted
to hit targets in the federal capital with rockets fired from
the Margallah Hills, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said
today.

"The importance of the terrorist can be gauged from
the fact that he was operating in different areas of the
country, including the federal capital," Malik told reporters.

He did not identify the terrorist or the group to
which he belonged.

The terrorist could be described as a "handler or
operator" because his record showed his involvement in
subversive activities, he claimed.

Security agencies have arrested almost all members of
the terrorist`s gang and one or two members will be nabbed
soon, he said.

Malik said he was hopeful that the investigation of
the arrested terrorists will reveal more facts about their
activities.
Security in Islamabad has been further strengthened
following the arrest of the terrorists, he said.

external powers" wanted to destabilise Pakistan but did not
give details.

The Margalla Hills are a series of small elevation
hills located north of the Pakistani capital.
