The elaborate security arrangements are being made after a court ruled that Bhutto - who faces threats from pro-Taliban Islamic militants - be provided maximum protection, the official said on condition of anonymity.

Bhutto is planning to return to Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi, which has been the scene of various terrorist attacks since Pakistan allied with Washington in the war on terror after the 9/11 attacks in the US.

Security personnel will be deployed at Karachi International Airport and along roads where Bhutto is expected to lead a rally, the official said.

“The police and Rangers will control all roads from the airport to where the rally leads,” the official said.

A special shipping container, fortified with bulletproof glass, has been prepared to provide Bhutto with security during the rally, the official said.

The authorities were confident of Bhutto’s safety, the Daily Times quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
