According to a Times News Network report, Pakistan has claimed that the Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) is planning to kill Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed so as to create an atmosphere of chaos in Pakistan on a massive level.
The report further states that R&AW has even tasked its agents to kill these two Pakistani power-heads.
Saeed is one of India’s most wanted men because of his involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
The report Pakistani Punjab’s home department received circulars this past Thursday following which they immediately issued a high-alert about an assassination threat to the Pakistani PM and the Jamaat ud Dawa chief Saeed.
The letter issued by the Punjab’s home department read:
“It has been reliably learnt that R&AW has planned to undertake high-value assassinations in Pakistan to create a wide-scale chaos. R&AW officials are planning to portray their actions as retaliatory strikes by extremist groups like Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LeJ) and Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to avenge the recent terrorist actions.”
The published document then further added:
“Indian spy agency has also tasked its sources to gather all possible addresses of Hafiz Saeed in Punjab. The above-mentioned top-level actions have been planned to create anarchy in the country as a result of major acts of violence like assassination of the prime minister of Pakistan.”
They then finally ended the document stating that bot PM Sharif and Saeed had been informed about the development:
“The concerned officials had been directed to adopt precautions, besides exercising extra vigilance and taking heightened security measures at all tiers. They had been asked to ensure Mr Sharif’s security, especially during his public appearances.”
The news about R&AW planning to attack Pakistan’s PM and JuD chief was initially brought to light by Pakistan news network Duniya News on October 17.
Earlier this year Saeed, who is also connected to the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist group, which carried out the 2008 Mumbai attack, had reportedly advised the Sharif government to better become an “advocate” of Kashmiri people instead of extending a hand of friendship to India.
