KARACHI: Contrary to the Army Public School massacre, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, the terrorists outfit operating in the country, has deputed Baloch and Punjabi bombers to carryout Peshawar like guerilla attack in Karachi, security sources inform.

“The Khan Zaman Group of proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has planned to carry out a guerilla attack on the pattern of Peshawar massacre in Karachi”, the intelligence agencies warn provincial government of PPP.

According to credible sources the country’s intelligence agencies have informed the government of southern Pakistani province that as tightened security measures around the army public schools across the country have placed in the wake of Peshawar carnage, the terrorists have now changed their strategy and will hit civil educational institutions.

However, instead of dispatching foreign nationals and Pashtun ethnic militants who were used in the Peshawar terrorist attack, the Tehreek-e-Taliban’s KZ Group has dispatched three Baloch and four Punjabis to Karachi in order to carry out another lethal attack.

Since, the time and possible targets are unknown to the security officials, the law enforcers have been advised to take heightened security measures around all educational institutions in Karachi besides having an extreme vigilance over the activities in surroundings.

At least 148 people, including 136 schoolchildren, were killed in the Peshawar school massacre on 16th December last year which forced the federal government to take extra-ordinary measures, including the formation of military courts and extreme security measures for schools in the country.

In Sindh the government claimed to have taken security measures for the protection of schools but experts say the security level is not resistant to normal attack, leave aside a guerilla assault.
