QUETTA: The man who ‘masterminded’ the most brutal terrorists attacks in Balochistan province has been arrested by the law-enforcement agencies (LEAs), claims Sarfaraz Bugti, the Home Minister.

“We have booked Syed Ahmed alias Taqwa, the mastermind behind the last year’s major terrorist attacks in Balochistan,” said Bugti on Tuesday while addressing a news conference in Quetta alongside Balochistan Inspector General Police Ahsan Mehboob.

Syed Ahmed, according to the home minister, is the architect of attacks, including the August 8 massacre of lawyers, the October 26 killing of police cadets and the November 12 blast at Shah Noorani shrine. More than 180 people had been killed and hundreds of others injured in these attacks, claimed by the outlawed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) and Islamic State (IS).
