ISLAMABAD The Foreign Office on Saturday received a formal request from the US, urging Pakistan to probe into the links between accused of failed Times Square bombing and different militant groups operating iin Pakistan Interior Minister, Rehman Malik confirmed the report, saying that the US authorities had requested Pakistan to help US unearth those who involved in Times Square bombing plot. Shahzad, a US national of Pakistani origin, was detained by the US investigators on Monday for his alleged involvement in the failed bid at the time when he managed to enter a plane to quit US. Reiterating his resolve to cooperate fully with the US, Rehman Malik said that it would be premature to say anything about the links of incident with the tribal areas of Pakistan. He was talking to reporters after reaching back from China. The Minister said that the Government on Saturday had received a list of some charges against Shahzad. The US investigators are of the view that Shahzad visited South Waziristan Agency and held meeting with Hakeemullah Mehsud and Qari Hussain, the leaders of banned outfits, Malik added. He informed the media persons that the Ministry had issued orders to conduct a probe into the allegations levelled against Shahzad by US. The Interior Minister, however, dispelled the impression that a FBI team was present in Islamabad to probe into the links of the alleged detainee with the terrorist groups of FATA. It is the prerogative of Pakistani intelligence agencies to probe into the matter, adding that we will not allow any foreign investigation team to come and initiate investigations in this regard, he said. While giving the details of his visit to China, he said that Beijing had assured him of providing US$ 180 millions to Pakistan for enhancing the capacity of its law enforcement agencies. He appreciated the Chinas offer regarding training facilities to personnel of Pakistani law enforcement agencies and grant of two million yens for purchase of police equipments.
