Peshawar: ‘Suicide bomber’ surrenders to police
PESHAWAR: Ali Raza, a student at the University of Peshawar Mass Communication Department, surrendered to the police on Tuesday. Police had been looking for the final-year student who had been tipped off as a potential suicide bomber. The police had pasted posters with Raza’s picture at the main gate of the police lines. The posters read that the would-be bomber was likely to pose as the son of a senior military or police official to attack important government installations. According to police officials, Raza had not attended any classes since November 4 and had not been seen since. Police said Raza had stayed with the Taliban in the Shabqadar tehsil of Charsadda district and had also attended a militant training camp. Peshawar CCPO Dr Mohammad Sulaman said Raza had approached the police and denied the allegations against him. The CCPO said the police would protect Raza and confirmed that the allegations against him had been false.
