    He was arrested because his protection money to the police ran out.
    Or the right police cabal did not get their share.

    @Motiwala:

    Please do not comment if you cannot understand how our law enforcement officials are risking their lives to protect people like you and me from such militants. It is easier to criticize the police but very difficult to go out on your own and face these militants.

    @Pakistani : Police are only protecting the “protected” Our protection is just a hallucination. Also don’t worry, because soon this terrorist will be free on grounds such as “lack of evidence” and “poor case” to kill another 1000 or so of our countrymen.

    It is so true that terrorists may create mayhem and terror but ultimately they do get caught or killed. Congratulations to Islamabad Police on their valiant efforts on apprehending a wanted terrorist. One less enemy to worry about! We stand united with the people and security forces of Pakistan as they work towards a better and peaceful region.

    He should be hanged publicly. Congratulations to Islamabad police for their effort.

    Start publishing pictures of these accused without covering their faces with pillow covers and then we will start to believe that anybody “real” was actually caught.

    Attention Tribune, could we have more info on this arrest. Where was he picked up from, who had been hiding him, how many other people were nabbed alongwith him, and most importantly, as a reader here has said, could we have a picture of this terrorist, minus pillow cover?
