Suspicious ‘Afghan’ man arrested after he broke into Pakistan’s PM house

The Counter-Terrorism Department of Islamabad police has arrested a man, who identified himself as a resident of Afghanistan, for breaking into the house of Shehbaz Sharif, Pakistan’s Prime Minister, bypassing tight security arrangements and checkpoints leading to the PM’s house.

Citing its sources, Pakistan’s Geo News reported on Saturday that the suspect had made his way into the PM’s residence by passing through three different paths.

“The suspect was immediately taken into custody by the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of the Islamabad police and has been shifted to an unknown place,” the Pakistani news channel added.

Security personnel assigned at the PM’s residence reportedly did not know how the man sneaked into the house. Pakistan’s security agencies had already acquired CCTV footages of the suspect and were trying to find out how he made it to the PM’s house.

The suspicious intrusion comes amid deteriorating security situation in Pakistan and after the country’s national security committee said that the government was planning to launch a nationwide operations against the armed militants, particularly against the Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.
