LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah ruled out any operation in South Punjab on Thursday, saying that Taliban are recruiting in Lahore and Faisalabad, not training in Punjab.
Speaking to Express, he said the two main accused of the Jinnah Hospital terror attack have been arrested, adding that initial investigation revealed that all the terrorists got their training from Miranshah and later joined the Raiwind congregation and stayed over there.
He also said that the terrorists hide their weapons in Raiwind but the Raiwind administration itself is unaware of such actions.
Sanaullah also said that accused of Jinnah hospital attack were arrested buy their names cant be disclosed right now.
Salman Masood writing for the Express Tribune said:
That said, south Punjab continues to make headlines after each terror incident. These districts have remained dismally impoverished with an abundance of madrassahs and outfits like the Sipah-i-Sahaba, the LeJ and the Jaish-i-Muhammad have strong networks there.
