KARACHI: A plan to break in to the Hyderabad Jail has been foiled by intelligence agencies and its masterminds are in custody, the DG ISPR, General Asim Bajwa revealed during a press conference held on Friday.
The master minds, Naeem Bukhar and Muhammad Farooq Musani were LEJ Sindh Ameer and Al Qaeda sub continent chief respectively. Bukhari had also master minded the Karachi Airport Attack.
The ISPR Chief said that the terrorists planned to break into the Hyderabad Jail and release the main convict of the Daniel Pearl murder case, Omar Saeed Sheikh and Faisal Shahzad who attempted to bomb the TImes Square in New York in 2010.
