LONDON - Advisor to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik on Thursday disclosed that Brahamdakh Bugti was involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan while sitting in Kabul. The Pakistan government has expressed its concerns over this situation besides presenting documentary evidence to Afghan President Hamid Karzai in support of its contention. He lamented over the fact that no action has been taken so far in this regard. Addressing a hurriedly-called Press conference at the Pakistan High Commission on Thursday afternoon, Rehman Malik said that he had met PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif at his Park Lane residence in London at the behest of Asif Ali Zardari and had taken him into confidence on the Bara operation. According to him, he briefed Nawaz on his visit to UK and his interaction with the British officials. Rehman Malik stressed that Bara operation was launched in the wake of Pakistani agencies report as well as concerns expressed by the NWFP Chief Minister that the Taliban militants had reached Peshawar and were about to capture it. Malik pointed to the conspiracies, being hatched by the enemies of Pakistan to destabilise the country, asserting that this would never be allowed to happen. He informed the media about the recent action taken by the government to re-establish its writ in the areas around Peshawar and Bara, maintaining that the situation had been brought under control. He said law enforcement agencies had arrested 100 persons including 32 deputy commanders of the hardcore militant organisations while their radio station was also destroyed. Rebutting reports on government inaction in the tribal areas, he said Pakistan would not accept any dictation from abroad, and that the action was being taken in the larger national interests. Referring to his meetings with British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith and Foreign Secretary David Miliband, Mr Malik said he informed them about the efforts being made by Pakistan to counter terrorism. The British officials were also informed that due to the measures taken by Pakistan, the number of suicide bombings had decreased substantially in Punjab and NWFP. A number of measures had been taken for the development of FATA, he said. The focus of his discussion with the British leaders was exchange of youth's visits, forced marriage issues, understanding British culture and matters about immigration and security. Mr Malik also directed the Pakistan High Commission to issue in 72 hours travel documents to the 8000 illegal Pakistanis in Britain. According to him, during his recent visit to Afghanistan and discussion with President Hamid Karzai, he had emphasised the need for better policing and monitoring of the border crossings. "Although President Karzai agreed to his proposals but despite three reminders, no progress has been made in this regard. "He highlighted the steps taken by Pakistan at the border checkposts at Chaman and Torkhum including the introduction of biometric cards, regretting the fact that the facilitation desk on the Afghan side had been destroyed by the Afghan soldiers. He said Pakistan was still playing host to some three million refugees and has urged Afghanistan to initiate development projects so that these refugees could return home and given suitable jobs. He said Balochistan dissidents with the help of some countries were actively engaged in destabilising the province and the country as a whole, and as result of their activities non-Balochis were being killed in Quetta and other areas. Referring to situation on Pak-Afghan border, he said NATO, Afghanistan and Pakistan were responsible for its control. He said Pakistan was discharging its responsibilities faithfully while Afghanistan must do the same on its side. Pakistan High Commissioner to UK Wajid Shamsul Hasan and other senior High Commission officials were also present on the occasion. On the complaints of the media persons, Mr Malik announced to transfer with immediate effect, five officials who had been handling the visa section work for over 10 years. He also appreciated the recent measures taken by the High Commissioner to facilitate persons coming to the High Commission for the attestation of their documents and other papers. Malik reiterated that the government's writ in the restive tribal areas would be maintained at all costs, asserting that the armed forces were fully capable of defending the territorial integrity of the country.
