Islamabad extremely dangerous, says Pakistan govt report

Pakistan's Interior Ministry has prepared a report, which has dubbed the capital 'extremely dangerous', according to Geo News on Wednesday. However, sources in the Interior Ministry said there is no such report.

The sources said that there was a general presentation to the Ministry by the director-general, National Crisis Management Cell, in which there was a passing reference to the kind of threats that may be posed to various parts of the country.

However, Geo quoted the "report" as saying Islamabad is at high risk with sleeper cells of terrorist groups like the al-Qaeda, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ). It said arms and terrorists were making their way into the country through both the eastern and western borders leading to cross border terrorism in Pakistan. It added that Balochistan and Azad Kashmir were "plagued by terrorism sponsored by India."
