ISLAMABAD: Law enforcement agencies have arrested a man believed to be the cook of Osama Bin Laden, head of the Al Qaeda network, sources told Daily Times on Thursday.
They said Muhammad Osman was arrested in a raid on Jamia Faridia on Wednesday and was taken to an undisclosed location for questioning. Sources said that Osman served the Al Qaeda head for six years. He had been studying Fiqa in the seminary for the last two years and had been staying in the hostel, sources said.
“The man is being interrogated and therefore it will be premature to comment on the matter,” an investigation officer who is on the investigation team, told Daily Times. Senior officials, however, denied the arrest.
Meanwhile, the police raided various mosques and seminaries in the federal capital and Rawalpindi to arrest Maulana Abdul Aziz who is wanted by the authorities for treason. Sources said Kohsar police was still holding licensed weapons confiscated in the raids, which is illegal.
