PM’s adviser seeks enhanced security

ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on Information Technology Sardar Latif Khosa has sought enhanced security after being threatened by terrorists, Dawn has learnt.

Mr Khosa sent a letter to Interior Minister Rehman Malik, after he received a ‘threat letter’ which, he said, had been dispatched from Shadman Post Office Lahore to his office and residences in Lahore and Islamabad.

The adviser informed the federal government that he needed extra protection in the light of a letter he received from Maulana Toofan of Tehrik-i-Taliban who had threatened his sons and grandchildren.

Mr Khosa said he had been threatened for calling Taliban terrorists and suggesting the military authorities to eliminate them during a meeting, the source said.

After receiving the hand-written threat letter, Mr Khosa intimated the Federal Investigation Agency as well as heads of law enforcement agencies.

The source said the law enforcement agencies had been directed to enhance security for the former attorney general.
