3 US ‘diplomats’ with 3 local Contacts arrested in Peshawar for illegally carrying weapons
JNN 07 June 2012 PESHAWAR: Six people, including three US nationals, were detained Monday after police discovered a large cache of illegal arms from their vehicles.
Police officials told Dawn TV that the diplomats, along with three Pakistani nationals, were stopped at a routine checkpoint at the entrance to the Peshawar Motorway on Monday but they refused to allow the police to search their vehicles.
The police checked the “suspicious cars” anyway and discovered several assault rifles, pistols, and ammunition. Police sources told Dawn.com that the weapons included 4 M4 assault rifles with 36 magazines and 4 pistols with 30 magazines.
US Consul General Mary Richard also reached the police station where the Americans were detained for questioning, urging officials to seize weapons but not to detain the US Diplomats
The US Consul General however refused to give any comments on the arrests when approached by our reporter.
Reuters news agency reported a US embassy official as saying: “These officials were returning from a visit to Malakand University where they were preparing for an English education event for underprivileged children. They had all proper permissions but were stopped when returning to Peshawar.”
The six detained included three foreigners described as US diplomats, as well as three Pakistanis, which included a security guard and two drivers.
According to recent instruction from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government, foreign diplomats are prohibited from carrying weapons or travelling to prohibited areas in the provinc
In January 2011, Raymond Davis, a CIA agent operating under the cover of a diplomat, shot and killed two Pakistanis in Lahore, triggering a diplomatic crisis.
Pakistan charged him with murder, but Washington insisted that he was an “administrative and technical official” attached to its Lahore consulate and had diplomatic immunity.
Davis was finally allowed to leave Pakistan in March 2011 after a $2.4 million diyya (a form of monetary compensation or blood money) was paid to the victims’ families.
After the Davis incident, Islamabad ordered all CIA agents to leave the country, but according to local sources, there are still scores of CIA agents working in Pakistan.
And in the Latest development there is another row between the Conviction of a Pakistani , who was working for the US Secret Service CIA, and who was supposed to be the one to lead to the execution of Osama Bin Laden, who was never there, while only his wives and children were living in the compound said to be the hiding Place of Osama Bin Laden by the US , as he died of his Natural death years back as was even reported in Press and Media .
The Pakistan Government and the Media has even Unearthed the details of Dr . Shakeel Afridi, who was the Local contact of the US Agency CIA, and as he and Other People like him , were used by the Agents to finance the Terrorist Groups , working in the best Inerest of US , and on anti Pakistan Basis. As even Shakil Afridi was even convicted of transferring funds to a Notorious Terrorist Mangal Bagh, Who was working for the Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan , which is working in Pakistan , against the Integration of Pakistan. And has even been declared as Banned Terrorist Organisation.
While US under no International Law can interfere in the conviction or Punishment of the Pakistani traitors , as it is against the sovereignty of the Pakistani State , But to uphold their Hegemony US is openly , asking the Pakistani Government to release the Pakistani traitors , working in the best Interest of US and their allied Zionist forces.
