Peshawar school attack’s main executor arrested

Taj Muhammad alias Rizwan, one of the main executors of the tragic Peshawar school attack, which happened on December 16 2014, was arrested in an intelligence based operation on Monday.

According to ISPR, the attack was reportedly led by two groups; Taj Muhammad was the commander of one of them while the other was commanded by Atique-ur-Rehman alias Usman who has already been apprehended by security forces. More than 150 people were killed in the attack, including 133 students.

Taj Muhammad, aged 27, is from Khyber Agency, one of the tribal areas in FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas) but was posing as an internally displaced person in Pawakai village of Peshawar.

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has already claimed the responsibility for the Peshawar school attack. The arrested militant commander confessed about his affiliation to TTP since 2008 and said he had been involved in numerous other terrorist activities across North Waziristan and Peshawar.
