Intelligence agencies have warned of a possible terrorist attack on the daughter of former Pakistani president, General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, in Karachi.
According to an advisory issued by the Sindh home department, intelligence agencies have warned that terrorist organisations have prepared a plan to target Pervez Musharraf’s daughter who lives in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority. Following the threats, the provincial home department has requested Rangers and the police to provide fool-proof security for Ayla Musharraf.
The security has been beefed up at the residence of Ayla Musharraf following the provincial home department’s request, it was reported.
According to sources, about 35 Rangers and police personnel will be deployed at her residence.
On the other hand, the Clifton division SP Sarfaraz Nawaz declined having knowledge about any threats to Ayla Musharraf. “We have not received any recommendations for her security,” he told The Express Tribune. “She would be provided security after we receive a written letter from the government,” he said.
