Terrorists obtain police uniforms
ISLAMABAD: Terrorist organisations have acquired police uniforms to make it easier for themselves to access foreign missions to fulfil their nefarious designs.
This was revealed in a report submitted by intelligence agencies to the Interior Ministry. The report maintains that this action was taken by terrorist organisations, including Al-Qaeda, as part of a plan to target diplomats and missions of those foreign countries whose forces were fighting in Iraq.
Terrorist organisations are collecting information about police officials deployed for the protection of foreign dignities and are especially interested in officials who are on leave, the report said. It added that the terrorist organisations were paying dishonest police officials to provide them with the required information.
According to the report, terrorists might plant members in police uniforms outside foreign missions in place of those police officials who were on leave so that they could target the diplomats easily. Keeping in view such reports, the Interior Ministry directed home secretaries of the four provinces, chief secretaries of Azad Kashmir and the Northern Areas and the chief commissioner of the federal capital to take preventive measures in this regard, sources said.
