FAISALABAD: A suspect, who had been arrested from Faisalabad in connection with the PNS Mehran base attack, has been released after initial investigation.
Qari Qaiser, 30, hailing from Dera Ghazi Khan, had been picked up in Faisalabad on Friday by intelligence agencies investigating the PNS Mehran base attack. He had been traced via phone calls made to his number from cell phones recovered off the four attackers who were killed while attacking the naval base in Karachi.
Qaiser, who runs a madrassah in Satiana, near Faisalabad, had been taken to an undisclosed location by intelligence agents where he was interrogated about phone calls that he had received.
Qari Qaiser said that he was released on Sunday after unknown men gave him Rs300 for the bus fare home.
