Pakistan to provide Iran with new information on terrorists' arrest
Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said Tuesday that Pakistan was to provide Iran with new information on the arrest of certain terrorist agents, IRNA reported.
Pakistani officials have recently announced that they have arrested Abdul Rauf Rigi the younger brother of Abdulmalik rigi, the wring leader of a notorious terrorist group that was responsible for carrying out bloody attacks in southeastern Iran.
Abdulmalik was arrested and then executed in Iran last February.
Abdul Rauf, who had reportedly succeeded his elder brother after his execution, is said to have been arrested in Balochistan on December 21 after his telephone call with London-based daily al-Sharq al-Awsat was intercepted leading Pakistani security personnel to his hideout along the Pakistan-Iran border.
Pakistani officials had said last Saturday that Abdul Rauf would be handed over to Iran after his interrogation was completed in Pakistan.
'Pakistan is to provide us with new information on the issue,' Mohammad-Najjar told IRNA on the sidelines of a local meeting in Tehran.
He reiterated Tehran's call on Islamabad to 'immediately hand over the arrested terrorists' to Tehran and do not let them make any move inside the Pakistani territory.
The minister regretted that there were some terrorist agents still acting on the Pakistani soil.
