Mastermind of Sakhi Sarwar terror blasts arrested in Pak's Bajaur Agency
Peshawar, April 10(ANI): Behram Khan, the alleged mastermind of the April 3 twin suicide attack on Syed Sakhi Sarwar shrine near Dera Ghazi Khan in Pakistan, has been arrested from Bajaur Agency along with five associates.
At least one militant was also reported to be killed during the raid by the security forces, the Dawn reports.
The blasts took place last Sunday when hundreds of devotees from various parts of the country had thronged the shrine to attend the weeks-long Urs-cum-spring festivities in the remote town of Sakhi Sarwar, 35 kilometres from Dera Ghazi Khan city.
The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack, in which at least 49 people lost their lives and over 100 others were wounded.
Sufi worshippers, who follow a mystical strain of Islam, have increasingly been the target of bloody attacks by militants in Pakistan. (ANI)
