ISLAMABAD - The Ministry of Interior has suspected the involvement of dangerous Taliban terrorist Adnan Rasheed in Kamra Airbase attack that left nine terrorists and a security official dead Thursday.

An attack on the Bannu prison was carried out in April last to free convicted terrorist Adnan Rasheed, along with 400 other prisoners after which it was advised to beef up the security of military installations and VIPs. A ministry report had also elucidated that Adnan Rasheed was an ex-PAF employee and had information about the airbases and highly sensitive installations.

Militants dressed in uniform and armed with guns and rocket launchers stormed PAF base Kamra, sparking heavy clashes that left nine militants and a security official dead.

The base commander, who led the counter-attack, was also injured in the battle.
