Terror aid suspect wanted by US arrested in Swat

Security forces on Monday arrested one Alamzeb and interrogated his mother Amna Bibi, both of whom – along with a third person named Ali Rehman – are wanted by the United States. As per details, a security forces team raided the house of Amna and questioned her in connection with US allegations. Amna’s father Hafiz Sher Ali and his two sons Irfanul Haq and Izharul Haq have been arrested by US authorities and charged with giving around $45,000 to the Taliban militants in Swat through Amna, Alamzeb and Ali Rehman. The security forces did not arrest Amna but took Alamzeb with them to an undisclosed location.
There is no information available about Ali Rehman, who according to Alamzeb runs a shop in Mingora Bazaar. Hafiz Sher Ali’s third son, Ikramul Haq, who goes by the name of Ikram Khan, also lives in the US, but faces no criminal charges as yet. However, police record revealed that Ikram was wanted in five cases of terrorism registered with the Kabal police. These cases included attacking and killing police and other security forces personnel and civilians. Alamzeb told investigators that Ikram fled to the US during the military offensive in Swat in 2009. But the Immigration Department has no record whether Ikram was on the ECL.
