Taliban Miranshah, Feb 14(ANI): Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has said that the government should execute double murder-accused US official Raymond Davis, or hand him over to them.

“We demand that the Pakistani government hang Raymond Davis or otherwise hand him over to us. We will decide his fate,” the Daily Times quoted TTP spokesman Azam Tariq, as saying.

Tariq further claimed that Davis, whose exact role in Pakistan is not clear, was a spy.

“He was here for spying. He is an American spy. We will kill all those people and will target them who will help him Davis or try to set him free,” Tariq said.

“He is a killer, he has killed two innocent Pakistanis. We will take revenge for them,” he added.

Davis was arrested on January 27 after he shot two Pakistani men to death at Mazang Chowk in Lahore.

He has claimed that he acted in self-defence fearing that the two men were about to rob him. (ANI)
