An notice for a potential suicide attack has been issued, which has increased security in the capital city of Pakistan.
The intelligence agencies have been informed that Zakir Khan son of Laique, a potential suicide bomber from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, will attempt to enter Islamabad. Additionally, a picture of the alleged terrorist was made public.
The capital police have increased security in response to the danger notice, and the Ministry of Interior has been asked to provide extra FC troops for deployment at the check points. Additionally, the security of the Parliament Building has been tightened, and admission by unrelated people is no longer permitted.
According to sources, the security alert has caused all meetings of the standing committees to be postponed.
As security personnel have been deployed for their security, the police have in the interim urged citizens to cooperate with them.
A suicide bomber detonated himself earlier this month in Islamabad’s I-10 neighbourhood after his taxi was stopped for a suspicion check. According to Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, the assailant intended to attack a number of important targets in the nation’s capital.
