Army Chief strongly condemned terrorist attack on American University of Afghanistan in Kabul and expresses his sympathies with the bereaved families.
Conversation took place as US Special Envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Olson, Special Assistant to the US President Dr Peter Lavoy and Commander of Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan Gen John Nicholson visited Islamabad. Afghan authorities shared three mobile telephone numbers allegedly used during the university attack, who allegedly were on contact with the attackers.
Based on these three Afghan cell numbers provided by Afghan authorities, Pakistan Army carried out a combing operation in suspected area closer to Pakistan-Afghan border to verify presence of miscreants. According to the evaluation of the evidence provided and outcome of the combing operation so far, all Afghan SIMs used during the attack were from a network owned and operated by Afghan company whose spill over signal affects some areas along Pak-Afghan border.
