US 'jihad seekers' were planning to attack Pak's Chashma nuke plant
Islamabad, Dec.26 (ANI): The five US origin terror suspects, who were arrested from Sargodha earlier this month, were planning to attack the Chasma Nuclear Power Plant and other strategic establishments in the country, a private television channel has reported.
The Daily Times reported Sargodha Cantonment Station House Officer, Amir Sherazi, as saying that the suspects had disclosed their nefarious plans during the interrogation.
Earlier, local Pakistani court extended the custody of the terror suspects for 10 more days till January 4.
All the five 'jihad seekers' were produced before an anti-terrorism court in Sargodha on Friday, following which Judge Mohammad Aslam extended their custody on the plea of the police, which said that more time was needed to complete the investigations.
"We do not think that a 10-day remand is sufficient to investigate this complex matter. At next hearing we may ask for more time," a foreign news agency quoted a senior Pakistani police official, Haseeb Shah, as saying.
During the hearing, another police official, Amir Abbas told the court that during investigations, officials scanned the common email accounts of the suspects in which the name of a Pakistani nuclear plant was mentioned.
Pakistan has made it clear that the men, all in their late 20s, would not be deported to the US and that they would be prosecuted in the country itself. (ANI)
