Lahore: LEA arrests Al-Qaida young commander in a raid at University hostel

LAHORE: The sensitive organization raided a University hostel and arrested a young foreigner Al-Qaida commander on Saturday here.

Al-Qaida commander had landed in the city for leading a ‘Fidayee Mission’, who was provided shelter by the students of a religious party’s subsidiary organization, intelligence sources said.

Sources said that the accused having expertise in subversive activities earlier conducted in the tribal areas came to Lahore for leading some such deadly missions in the city, but before he could cause any damage he was arrested and shifted to some unknown place.

Sources further said that the University hostel management didn’t co-operate with law enforcing agency during the raid, while a student identifying himself an office bearer of the mighty student outfit tried to scare away the LEA men.
