Just recently, the beautiful city of Quetta faced one of the darkest nights of all times. Terrorists, on the night of 24th October 2016, attacked a police training college. This attack claimed at least 61 innocent lives and left behind 165 injured victims.
In the latest news, as provided by the 92 News channel, some chat conversations between terrorists that are recovered from the mobile phones of terrorists, who were directly involved in the attack, with their ‘Ameer’. The latest development in the case shows that the instructions for carrying out the attack were issued from Afghanistan. Furthermore, the chats also serve as an indication of the involvement of RAW and Afghanistan’s Intelligence agency in the terrorist attack aforesaid.
In the conversation, the attacker present in Quetta has messaged their ‘Ameer’ in Afghanistan to seek permission for going ahead and attack. Upon their question, the Ameer responded by saying that instead of asking him they should go ahead if they can.
After getting the green signal from Ameer, the attacker responded by seeking some guidance and said that the officials have a strict checking policy at check posts and they are not letting anyone easily pass through such check posts. One of the messages by an attacker in conversation also reveals that he assured the ‘Ameer’ of attack by telling him not to worry and also asked him to find the news of the attack in newspaper next morning.
The chat conversation has been carried out via Facebook Messenger. The conversation further reveals the name of the recipient as Ali Bin Sufyan, apparently, it is the person who directed the attack from Afghanistan.
According to the conversation, the terrorists had a strong network and they were continuously in contact with each other. The ‘Ameer’ also assured terrorists to not hesitate in attacking as they already have their helpers- ‘3 Bhai’, inside ready for the assistance in the mission.
The conversation regarding setup of check posts do indicate that Pakistan’s security agencies were playing an active role in the prevention of any unpleasant incident like such attack however, there was some lapse too which resulted in the successful mission of terrorists.
