Islamabad: Pakistan will consider extradition of Taliban commander Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar to the US if such a request is received from Washington, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Monday.
The Taliban leader was captured in Karachi, Geo TV reported.

"No such request has so far been received," Malik told reporters here.

The minister said Chinese-made scanning devices would be installed in four provincial capitals by next year as part of the government`s anti-terror measures.

He said several high-ranking terrorists have been apprehended recently and the government would make public about the arrests only after their identification process is completed.
