KARACHI: The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) on Tuesday claimed to have arrested a graduate turned terror suspect affiliated since 2007 with the proscribed organisation Hizb ul Tehreer (HuT) from the Clifton vicinity of Karachi.

According to Karachi CTD In-charge Mazhar Mashwani, suspect Muhammad Owais Raheel was a graduate of the reputable NED University of Engineering and Technology as well as held a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the prestigious Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Karachi.

Mashwani went on to say that a large number of pamphlets were recovered from Owais’s possession, adding that it was his responsibility to distribute leaflets of HuT in mosques located in Clifton and Defence areas of the city.

Owais told the interrogators that he stayed in contact with the help of the communication software ‘Viber’ with his other companions, who are residents of Malir, Landhi and Model Colony in Karachi.
