Gilgit: Terrorist Shakirullah Jan threaten to kill Syed Razi Uddin Rizvi
Agha Raziuddin Rizvi, PPP’s legislator in the Gilgit – Baltistan (G-B) Assembly said prisoners (terrorists) who recently escaped from Gilgit jail must be arrested because they are a security threat for the region. Raziuddin Rizvi, brother of martyr Shia leader Maulana Agha Ziauddin Rizvi, told the house that Shakirullah Jan, a fugitive, accused of Agha Ziauddin assassination), who escaped from jail last year, called him from an undisclosed location and threatened to kill him. “He rang on my cell phone from an unknown number.” Jan, a resident of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, was facing trial in an Anti-Terrorism Court in Gilgit for the murder of Agha Ziauddin Rizvi in January 2005. Shakirullah Jan along with another inmate, Arifuddin, had escaped from jail in December 2012 after intoxicating the security personnel on duty. Taking note of the issue, speaker of the legislative assembly, Wazir Baig, said law enforcement agencies were not performing their duties effectively, which has resulted in the escape of these high-profile prisoners. “Do not think that we do not know anything. We are aware of what is going on in the administration. We want to see all those prisoners back behind bars immediately,” he added.
