Pak government admits its failure to nab Lahore attackersMarch 12th, 2009 - 3:29 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Mar.12 (ANI): Over a week after the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket players, the Punjab government has admitted that it has failed to nab any of the culprits who had carried out the attack.
According to an official report of the provincial government, not a single perpetrator of the terror attack has been put behind the bar yet.
The report viewed the attackers as members of a highly-trained group, and feared that they could initiate more such attacks in near future.
According to The Daily Times, the government has expressed apprehensions that foreign embassies and nationals, especially Chinese nationals working in Pakistan could be targeted next.
The government report is in complete contrast with the statement of Pakistan Prime Ministers Advisor on Interior Affairs, Rehman Malik, who a day after the attack had claimed that few persons were taken into custody and told media persons that intelligence agencies had gathered sufficient information about the terrorists involved.
A major breakthrough would be achieved in the next few days, Malik had said. (ANI)
