Threats against Musharraf create tensions in Pak`s security apparatus
Islamabad: New details on threats against former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, who soon expected to visit Islamabad, have created tensions in the state security apparatus, a report has said.
The threats against Musharraf have required the police and intelligence agencies to increase security preparations.
According to the Dawn, Musharraf`s presence in Pakistan have already led to potential risks, with people seeking revenge for military operations in the tribal areas and the Lal Masjid operation of 2007.
Intelligence reports suggested that two groups of suicide bombers had been sent to attack the former military ruler, the former was sent to Karachi, and if they failed, the second group was to "make an attempt" at Benazir Bhutto International Airport , the paper said.
As a result, the police have been advised to prevent any public gathering when Musharraf arrives at Benazir Bhutto International Airport, it added.
The paper said that Islamabad police have consistently maintained that they oppose Musharraf`s visit, feeling that it presents unnecessary risks both for Musharraf himself and for the city.
The interior ministry has added to that feeling by demanding a contingent of 350 personnel and six vehicles, including a bulletproof car, for the former president`s security, the paper added.
