Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar has claimed that a high ranking government official revealed in a meeting of the National Security Committee of the National Assembly that the Afghan Taliban have been generating around USD 200 million annually by performing different kinds of criminal activities, which included extortion, in Pakistan.

Using his social media handle, the PPP’s leader tweeted that “Aren’t they hand in glove with the TTP (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan).”

A day ago, Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar further stated that dozens have been killed by the TTP in Swat, Kurram and other places, The News International reported.

Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar wrote that the terrorism has been showing its ugly face again, questioning that why is Afghan soil being used by TTP.

He further asked why some of them are sheltering RAW-funded TTP, reports The News International.
