Awami National Party (ANP) General Secretary Mian Iftikhar Hussain on Friday demanded of the government to launch an operation against Punjabi Taliban in Punjab.
Addressing a ceremony held to mark the death anniversary of Wali Khan, the ANP general secretary said the Punjabi Taliban are educated and more dangerous than other terror outfits. He said that disciples of Punjabi Taliban have been operating in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province.
