Pakistan continues to provide VIP treatment to 21 dreaded terrorists: Reports
Islamabad: Despite Financial Action Task Force (FATF) challenge, Pakistan continues to provide VIP treatment to many terrorists, including underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and Pakistan-based Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) terrorist Ranjeet Singh Neeta, media reports said.
Sources told ANI that the international community is concerned about the hypocrisy of Pakistan which is pretending to take action against terrorists but is funding them.
Sources told ANI the Pakistan government is giving VIP security to 21 dreaded terrorists including those sanctioned last month.
According to the list accessed by ANI, the terrorists given VIP treatment include underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, Wadhwa Singh, Chief of Babbar Khalsa International (BKI), Indian Mujahideen (IM) chief, Riyaz Bhatkal, terrorist Mirza Shadab Baig and Afif Hassan Siddibapa.
FATF placed Pakistan in the grey list in June 2018 and asked for compliance of 27 action plans to come out from the scrutiny list until Sept 2019.
Pakistan has so far been given three times extension of three months, every time to comply with 27 action points, The News International reported.
Out of 27 points, the FATF had declared Pakistan fully compliant on 14 points and now there is the deadline of October 2020 for complying with the remaining 13 points, reported the Pakistani newspaper.
