GILGIT: The terrorist mastermind behind the attack on foreign trekkers in Nanga Parbat has been arrested, Express News reported Thursday.

According to the Chief Secretary of Gilgit-Baltistan Younis Dagha, the terrorist Qaribullah alias ‘Hasan’ is the former Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) leader of the Chilas unit.

On June 23, ten foreign trekkers and their Pakistani guide were mowed to death by gunmen in paramilitary fatigue at a base camp of Nanga Parbat, in Gilgit-Baltistan in an attack claimed by both the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and Jundullah sectarian extremist group.

Earlier, gunmen dressed as paramilitary forces killed nine foreign tourists in an unprecedented attack in the Himalayas of Gilgit-Baltistan.

M Nabi alias Qari Husnain, a suspect in the murder of government officials, was also arrested.

Correction: In an earlier version of this story, Chief Secretary Younis Dagha was incorrectly mentioned as Chief Minister. The error has been fixed.

    ‘mowed to death’ is an expression used when a vehicle runs over people. right-click -> synonyms is not always a good idea!

    Actually that would be “mowed down” Mowed to death is often used by newspapers to describe such massacres.

    Now there won’t be death penalty for these animals because it has been suspended due to EU and so called human rights of these murderers.

    Fix them! don’t give them any chance just like they didn’t give their victims any chance or warning. These twisted minds should be dealt with ruthlessly.
