Jundallah Chief Rigi nabbed in Pakistan

JNN 25 Dec 2o1o : ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has arrested Abdul Rauf Rigi, the new chief of outlawed terrorist group Jundallah, said an Iranian news agency.

According to the agency, Pakistani officials confirmed that Jundallah’s new chief has been arrested.

It should be mentioned here Rigi took charge of the terrorist outfit after his elder brother Abdul Malik was hanged in Iran. He was arrested by Iranian intelligence forces in February 2010 and executed in June for 79 counts of crime, including armed robbery, bombing operations and armed attacks on police and civilians.

On December 20, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on his counterpart Asif Ali Zardari to arrest “known” terrorists and extradite them to Iran.

Zardari assured the Iranian president that Pakistan would not withhold any help in uprooting terrorism.

The news agency did not disclose the location of Rigi’s arrest.
