The arrest comes after the ISKP claimed responsibility for the attack on a Sikh Gurdwara in Kabul where 27 people were killed. As per experts, the foremost target of ISKP was the Indian Embassy in Kabul as terror groups wanted to derail India-Afghan ties and eliminate any Indian presence in the country.

“The ISKP is just a brainchild of Pakistan’s ISI, which is developed to hit at targets for larger tactical purposes of Pakistan. Among those captured include terrorists from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Nangarhar, Quetta, Pakistan-controlled-Kashmir, Karachi and Kunar Province of Afghanistan. This is the most important feat of Afghan security forces till date,” HT quoted a senior counter-terror official.
