Two alleged Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan activists confessed to the allegations made by the Anti-Extremism Cell in a court on Friday.

The two alleged activists, Abdul Razak alias Qari Umer and Rashid Iqbal alias Abdul Basit, were presented before the judicial magistrate, west, Muhammad Afzal Roshan. The two men said that they used to kidnap children from different areas of Karachi and then send them to Rehman Muhammad Mehsud Training Centre in Waziristan, where they were trained for suicide attacks.

They said that they were paid $25,000 by a foreign agency for every child they brought. Out of the total, $15,000 were kept by the training centre and the remaining was kept by them.

After hearing the statements, the magistrate sent the two men to jail.

The Anti-Extremism Cell of the Sindh police’s Crime Investigation Department arrested the accused during a raid on a graveyard in Frontier Colony on June 12.

Mirza | 10 years ago | Reply Who has been organizing and supporting these madarsas? Who is really interested in spreading extreme forms of Islam? It is an open secret that who is financing these mullahs. The money has been coming from countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE. No democratic country hands over this kind of cash for this long. They have parliment and oversight and re-elections.
