Sindh Assembly faces terror attack threat, speaker tells lawmakers

The Speaker of Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani on Friday apprised the provincial lawmakers regarding the security threat being faced by the legislature.

“The Sindh Assembly faces a terror attack threat,” Agha Siraj Durrani told the lawmakers.

He said that the photos of the Sindh Assembly building were recovered from the possession of terrorists. “The law enforcement authorities (LEAs) have conveyed regarding the terror threat,” the speaker said.

It is pertinent to mention here that days before the speaker Sindh Assembly’s divulged details of a security threat to the legislature, the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) issued a terror alert for Karachi, warning that terrorists-backed by foreign agencies have planned to attack key installations in the city.

The handout issued by the NACTA read that that key government buildings or installations could be targeted in the attack by foreign-backed terror elements.

“The preparation for an attack in Karachi has been completed,” it said while apprising that provincial home ministry, Inspector General of Police (IG) Sindh and Rangers were conveyed regarding the threat alert.
