'Traitor' Dr Afridi likely to be moved to Attock jail for security reasons

Islamabad, Wed, 30 May 2012 ANI

Islamabad, May 30 (ANI): Dr Shakil Afridi, who was sentenced 33 years of imprisonment after intelligence reports accused him of treason against Pakistan, is likely to be shifted from Peshawar central jail to Attock Fort, following intelligence reports which stated that his life was in danger at the present location.

Intelligence officials had earlier warned that keeping Dr Afridi in Peshawar's central prison is no less than keeping him in plain sight of the Taliban who are purportedly baying for his blood, reports The News.

According to an intelligence report submitted to authorities in Islamabad, Dr Afridi faces a grave threat to his life while he is imprisoned in the Peshawar central jail.

The location and accessibility of the prison makes it an easy target for the Taliban. Flanked on one side by the Grand Trunk Road, and the other three sides by the congested area of Saddar, the jail can easily be targeted by militants, especially those from the adjoining Khyber Agency, the report says.

Dr Afridi was sentenced after being found "guilty" of helping the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) track down Al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden, following which the U.S. attacked the Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad and killed him on May 2, 2011. (ANI)
