BISHAM: The suicide bomber who allegedly killed Superintendent of Police CID Chaudhry Aslam in Karachi belonged to Kamach Dheri village in the Puran tehsil of Shangla district.
It was learnt that the family of Naeemullah Khan, who allegedly carried out the suicide attack on the celebrated cop Muhammad Aslam, had shifted to Karachi some 30 years ago.
Naeemullah’s father Rafiullah Siddiqui ran a madrassa in Karachi. One of his brothers carried out a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. His other brother was killed by the Taliban for failing to conduct a suicide attack.
Two uncles of Naeemullah still live in Kamach Dheri in Shangla. His two other uncles reside in Torghar district.Shafiullah, brother of Naeemullah, was arrested by the security agencies in Karachi in connection with the suicide attack on Muhammad Aslam.
Kamach Dheri is located two kilometres away from Kabulgram village, where the local Taliban had established a centre in 2007. Maulana Waliullah Kabulgrami, who was the teacher of the outlawed Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Maulana Fazlullah, hailed from Kabulgram.After repeated warnings, he had surrendered to the security forces after the Swat operation by the military. Later, he died in the custody of the security forces.
