Pakistan claims arresting more people alleged of spying for the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). Pakistan’s The Express Tribune reports that the arrests were made based on the information provided by Kulbushan Yadav who was recently detained from Balochistan province on allegation of being a member of RAW. The media outlet citing officials says that the suspects’ identities could not be revealed at this stage in order not to jeopardise the ongoing operation against RAW people. New Delhi accepts that Yadav is an Indian national but rejects any espionage charges against him saying that he was doing a private business in Iran. A heavy explosion rocked the Kurdish-dominated Diyarbakir city of Turkey earlier tonight, leaving at least 7 people dead and over 20 others wounded. According to the security officials, the explosion took place after a vehicle packed with explosives was detonated near a bus carrying police personnel. The officials further added that 7 policemen were killed in the explosion while civilians and police personnel were among more than 20 wounded.
No group has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident which comes as Turkey has been hit by a string of attacks during the recent months.
The southeast Turkey where the incident took place this evening has been mainly rocked by waves of violence since a ceasefire between the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the government collapsed last July. Five people have been killed and several others wounded in an explosion in Lakki Marwat district of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Police force and rescue teams arrived at the site in a short spin of time and shifted victims to the nearby hospitals for treatment. District Police Officer (DPO) Ali Akbar said victims of the incident had come to Lakki Marwat from North Waziristan. He added that the bomb might have been attached to the vehicle but the incident is under further investigation. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the explosion which came days after a suicide bomber of TTP’s splinter group of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar killed at least 72 people and wounded more than 300 in Lahore.
An under construction bridge has collapse in West Bengal state of India leaving 21 people killed and 85 wounded. Several people are still trapped under the debris of the bridge located in the densely populated locality in Barra Bazar, northern part of Kolkata city. More than 150 army personnel were sent to assist the rescue teams trying to rescue those trapped under the debris of the collapse flyover which was under construction since 2009. Residents of the area assisted the rescue operation with their bare hands and were passing water to the survivors.
A 140-tonne crane was brought to lift the concrete slab of the flyover but it was unable to remove it under which several people have been trapped. NDTV reports that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, seeking re-election next month, rushed to the scene to survey the damage. A Pakistani media organization reports that the arrested agent of the Indian intelligence Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was operating out of Afghanistan. Jang which is a reliable and the oldest newspaper in Pakistan with its publication since 1939 citing intelligence sources says that Kul Bushan Yadav was employed at the Indian consulate in Kandahar province of Afghanistan bordering Pakistan.
According to the report, Yadav who was being observed from eight months had made 12 visits to Pakistan from Afghanistan and was in constant contact with leaders of Baloch separatists.
The media outlet further states that Yadav had distributed millions of Rupees in Balochistan to have disruptions but his core task was to disrupt the economic corridor.
It adds that when last time Yadav crossed border into Balochistan and arrived in Quetta he was arrested with maps of different areas of Pakistan.
Meanwhile, government claims recovering travel documents and multiple fake identities from the suspect showing that he entered into Balochistan through Iran with a valid Iranian visa. Pakistan has also released a six-minute-long video of the suspect who says that he is an operative of RAW and that he is still active with the Indian Navy. However, India has rejected the claim saying that the video statement is result of the torture.
Two Tajik road workers who were kidnapped by gunmen near Afghan border a few days before have been released. Mohammad Ulughzoda, a spokesman of State Committee for National Security of Tajikistan (SCNS) confirmed the release but did not provide further details. However, a spokesperson for the country’s border guard service has said that Monday’s release was negotiated. Tajikistan had claimed that the gunmen had crossed border into Shuro-obod district of Khatlon province from bordering Badakhshan province of Afghanistan. Reports suggest that the road workers were brought into Afghanistan and the release was secured with the assistance of influential figures in this side of the border.
Tajik President Emomali Rahmon had ordered all necessary measures to ensure the release of the hostages. A deadly blast hit the Lahore city of Pakistan earlier this evening leaving at least 72 dead and over 300 others wounded, the officials have said.
According to the eyewitnesses in the area, the explosion site was covered with pools of blood and scattered body parts following the deadly blast. A senior police official Dr Muhammad Iqbal said the explosion was a suicide attack and took place in a children’s park, where a large number of families, especially women and children, were present on a Sunday evening. The dead bodies of the victims as well as the injured individuals were shifted to the nearby hospitals.
A Pakistan Taliban splinter group claimed responsibility for the deadly suicide attack saying the Christians were targeted as they were celebrating Easter. This comes as the country has suffered regular incidents of Taliban-related violence, sectarian strife and criminal gang activity.
A firing incident took place at the joint border between Pakistan and Iran as President Hassan Rouhani was paying a visit to Islamabad.


President Rouhani arrived in Pakistan on Friday and met his Pakistani counterpart Mamnoon Hussain, the country’s Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Rahil Sharif. The two sides signed six documents on cooperation in various sectors during the two days of meetings. In the meantime, Pakistan’s Dawn news reported late yesterday that Iranian soldiers fired shells on Pakistani officials. A report published on Dawn’s website states that the incident took place near Check Post 154 when a survey team was inspecting a disputed area. According to the report, the survey was being conducted based on the decision of Pak-Iran Joint Border Commission to specify limits of the Check Post 154.
The East Asian country published a four-minute video titled ‘Last Chance’ on its propaganda website DPRK on Saturday which shows a fictional missile attack on the U.S. The missile shoots through the clouds and buzzing back to the earth only to hit the road in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. The video also carries images from the Korean War, the capture of US spy ship Pueblo in 1968 and the first crisis over North Korea’s nuclear program in the early 1990s. AFP reports that Pyongyang has upped the rhetorical ante in recent weeks, with near daily threats of nuclear and conventional strikes against the South and the US mainland in response to large-scale South-US war games. According to the report, the threats have turned increasingly personal, and North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un on Friday watched a live-fire long-range artillery drill simulating a strike on the official residence of his South Korean counterpart. Two road workers have been kidnapped by gunmen in Khatlon province of Tajikistan which is on the border with Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province. Government sources in Tajikistan have told Reuters that the gunmen had crossed from Afghanistan who also wounded another road worker in the attack on Friday.
An unnamed source in the regional government has described the attackers as smugglers saying that their victims had been working on a road improvement project in the Shuro-obod district near the border. A central government source has said Tajik President Imomali Rakhmon had ordered the government to take all necessary measures to ensure the release of the kidnapped men. This comes about three weeks after a Tajik border guard and an armed man was killed in a clash near the border. The country’s Main Border Guard Directorate at the State Committee for National Security (SCNS) said that the gunmen had crossed over from Afghanistan. Pakistan has been working to construct a big customs complex at Torkham border to improve trade with Afghanistan and Central Asian Republics. Qurban Ali Khan added that the current checking and clearing process at Torkhem border takes up to 24 hours but after the complex is built the process duration would be reduced to one hour.
Khan further said that the complex covering 700 kanals (about 87.5 acres) land would be the first of its kind in the country comprising custom and immigration offices, two-way custom and immigration terminals, checking and scanning plazas for pedestrians, passenger and cargo vehicles with other infrastructure and fully computerized system. According to Khan, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is providing $300 million loan for execution of the project on soft term basis to Pakistan while National Logistic Cell (NLC) is implementing the project which includes construction of similar border complex at Wagha post on Pak-India border and at Chaman in Balochistan. Reports suggest that several people were taken to different hospitals in unconscious condition from Karimabad area of Tando Muhammad Khan district on Monday. 23 of them, including three women, lost lives at the hospitals and more than 20 others are still under treatment. Hospital sources have expressed concern over the health condition of some other victims saying that the death toll may rise. Meanwhile, residents of the area took to the streets to show their anger over the incident and blocked the Hyderabad-Badin Road. Police have so far arrested 12 suspects for producing and selling wine in a search operation in Karimabad.
Qaim Ali Shah, Chief Minister of Sindh province has expressed sorrow over the loose of lives and sought complete report of the incident. A Pakistani television actress has promised to strip naked if her country’s national team defeats India in Icc World Twenty20. The actress, Qandeel Baloch, made the commitment in an online video message posted on her Facebook page, it has been reported. The actress had earlier slammed the Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi following Pakistan’s defaet in Asia Cup. Blaoch is following Poonam Pandey who made a similar commitment in 2011 who promised to strip naked if India wins the game. The arch rivals are due to meet in ICC World Twenty20 on 19th March in Super 10 Groiup 2 of the tournament. The Pakistani authorities have not reacted towards the controversial message of the actress so far. The ex-Soviet allies practice defending a possible spillover of militants from Afghanistan. Around 50,000 Tajik and 2,000 Russian troops are taking part in the drills which would continue for six days and will be carried out in more than 1,000 kilometers of the 1,400 kilometers joint border.
The drills come as the ex-Soviet allies worry incursion of armed groups from the Afghan side of the border.
At least 15 people were reportedly killed and over 20 others were wounded as a deadly blast ripped through a governmental bus in Peshawar city, the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
According to the local police officials, the explosives planted in a bus went off as it was carrying government employees from Mardan to Peshawar. No group has far claimed responsibility behind the incident which comes amid ongoing operations by the Pakistani army in the tribal regions of Pakistan against the homegrown Taliban and other insurgent groups.
The Pakistani military launched its latest ground and air operations against the militants in North Waziristan tribal region late last month. Numerous militants hideouts were targeted in the operations in Datta Khail region of North Waziristan which is said to be the last stronghold of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants.
India today successfully test-fired its indigenously built nuclear-capable intermediate range Agni-I ballistic missile, capable of hitting a target 700 kms away, from a test range off Odisha coast as part of a user trial by the Army, The Economic Times reports. The surface-to-surface, single-stage missile, powered by solid propellants, was test-fired from a mobile launcher at 9.15 AM from launch pad-4 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Abdul Kalam Island (Wheeler Island), a defence official said.
The trial, which formed part of training exercise by the Strategic Forces Command of Indian Army, was fully successful, he said. The sophisticated missile covered 700 km distance within 9 minutes and 36 seconds, they said.
The trajectory of the trial was tracked by a battery of sophisticated radars, telemetry observation stations, electro-optic instruments and naval ships from its launch till the missile hit the target area with accuracy, they said. Agni-I missile is equipped with sophisticated navigation system which ensures it reaches the target with a high degree of accuracy and precision. The missile, which has already been inducted into armed forces, has proved its excellent performance in terms of range, accuracy and lethality, the sources said. Weighing 12 tonnes, the 15-metre-long Agni-I, is designed to carry a payload of more than one tonne. Agni-I was developed by Advanced Systems Laboratory, the premier missile development laboratory of DRDO in collaboration with Defence Research Development Laboratory and Research Centre Imarat and integrated by Bharat Dynamics Limited, Hyderabad. The last trial of Agni-I, conducted on November 27, 2015 from the same base, was also successful. A car bomb blew up near a bus stop in the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Sunday, leaving at least 34 people killed and 125 wounded. Reuters reports that the blast, which could be heard several kilometers away, sent burning debris showering down over an area a few hundred meters (yards) from the Justice and Interior Ministries, a top courthouse, and the former office of the prime minister.
Turkish President said Turkey would use its right to self-defense to prevent future attacks and called for national unity. There is no word of responsibility for the bombing but two senior security officials told Reuters the first findings suggested that the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged a three-decade insurgency for Kurdish autonomy, or an affiliated group, was responsible. According to Reuters, Interior Minister Efkan Ala those behind the attack would be announced soon after investigation completes.
A murky security operation on Tajikistan’s border with Afghanistan on March 5 brought attention briefly back to an area that for nearly 25 years has rarely seen an entire week pass without some sort of incident taking place, Radio Liberty reports.
Some of the processes underway might lead to a further deterioration in the security situation along this almost perpetually unquiet border.
Abdullo mentioned that the Tajik side has difficulties knowing whom to contact on the Afghan side of the border when a problem erupts. Afghan forces now seem to be genuinely paying more attention to the situation in the northeastern part of the country.
Mudaqiq noted that, after the Taliban briefly captured Kunduz city in late September last year, the Afghan government restructured its forces in northeastern Afghanistan. At the same time, Russia, which has in recent years frequently voiced concern about security along Tajikistan’s border with Afghanistan, seems to be taking less of an interest in events there. The announcement about troop reductions also came after Russia’s ambassador to Afghanistan confirmed late last year that Russian officials met several times during the summer of 2015 at the Kulob base with Taliban representatives from northern Afghanistan.


The Majlis discussed this possibility and many other important issues concerning developments along the Tajik-Afghan border. Chinese troops will be positioned in Pakistan to protect the 3,000-km-long China-Pakistan Economic Corridor that connects the Gwadar Port in Balochistan to China’s Xinjiang region, NDTV reports.
Besides, Pakistan has raised three independent infantry Brigades and two additional artillery regiments to protect the highway, security agencies have told New Delhi. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor or CPEC starts from the restive Pakistani province of Balochistan, runs along the Makaran Coast turning north to connect Lahore and Islamabad, passes through Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and then runs into the Karakoram Highway, ending at Kashgar in the Xinjiang region of China. There are indications that Pakistan is seriously attempting to annex this region into a fifth province of Pakistan, government sources said.
Pakistan’s moves to annex Gilgit-Baltistan have led to massive protest in the region and brutal crackdowns on the local population. The first phase of the CPEC is likely to be functional by December 2016 and it is expected to be completely ready in three years, giving China direct access to the Indian Ocean and beyond. The corridor is likely to be used, among other things, to transport fuel and petroleum products from the Gulf region into China.
Chinese President Xi Jinping had agreed to build the highway and committed a whopping US dollars 46 billion for the project, during his visit to Pakistan last April.
Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for killing a colonel of Pakistan Army near Peshawar, capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provine. Pakistan Army’s media wing Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) while confirming said that Lt. TTP’s spokesperson Mohammad Khorasani later claimed responsibility for the attack saying that the attack was carried out by STF. This comes days after a TTP suicide bomber detonated his explosives near a local court near Peshawar killing at least 13 people and wounded over a dozen others.
A Pakistani media has claimed that the son of Punjab’s former governor was released from the kidnappers during a Taliban-Daesh clash in southern Afghanistan. Dunay news reports that Shahbaz Taseer was taken to North Waziristan and then to Afghanistan.
The news agency further writes that when Daesh emerged in Afghanistan the group of kidnappers joined it in southern Zabul province.
According to the report, sometimes back Taliban carried out an assault on a camp of Daesh and killed several fighters of the group.
It adds that Shahbaz Taseer was in the same camp who took advantage of the situation and runaway from there.
As per the report, Shahbaz Taseer then took refuge in a Taliban camp from where he was assisted to cross the border into Quetta, capital of Pakistan’s Baluchistan province.
Dunya news has published this information quoting sources who have talked on condition of anonymity. This comes as Pakistani authorities have not shared full details of Shahbaz Taseer’s release. Pakistani military’s media wing confirmed Shahbaz Taseer’s release and promised more details in a subsequent message which was never released. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) test-fired several ballistic missiles on Tuesday, state television said, challenging a United Nations resolution and drawing a threat of a diplomatic response from the United States, Reuters reports. Two months ago, Washington imposed sanctions against businesses and individuals linked to Iran’s missile program over a test of the medium-range Emad missile carried out in October 2015.
An Iranian state television report showed a missile being fired from a fortified underground silo at night time.
The report said the Guards had fired several missiles from silos across the country, though it only showed footage of one. State-run Press TV had earlier shown footage of the Emad missile, Iran’s most advanced model under development, being fired.
However, Washington said that a fresh missile test would not violate the Iran nuclear deal itself, under which Tehran agreed to restrict its atomic program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions. It is unlikely the Security Council would take action on Iranian missile tests, diplomats say. While most of its 15 members would agree with the United States and France about a likely violation of resolution 2231, Russia and China, which have veto power, made clear during negotiations on the Iran nuclear deal they did not agree with continuing the U.N. Iran always denied any link between its ballistic missiles and its disputed nuclear program, which is now subject to strict limitations and checks under the nuclear deal. While any missile of a certain size could in theory be used to carry a nuclear warhead, Iran says the Emad and other missiles are for use as a conventional deterrent.

A force spokesman said the arrested men were still in hospital this morning but their injuries are not described as life-threatening'My daughter said she actually saw a bloke running away from the scene in shorts.'It was like a bomb going off and has obliterated the front of the property.
The sound of the explosion in the store-room was heard in around two-km radius of the temple, they said. She however did pose naked in 2012 after KKR won the IPL, according to the local media reports. Tajik authorities claimed that the gunman had crossed border into Tajikistan along with his group from Afghanistan.
Embassy issued a warning that there was information regarding a potential attack on government buildings in the Bahcelievler area of Ankara, just a few km (miles) away from the blast site. However, the Afghan government’s renewed attention might help government forces gain better control over the area.
New Delhi has earlier objected to the presence to Chinese troops in the Gilgit-Baltistan area and a substantial portion of the additional forces being raised in Pakistan and the Chinese PLA are likely to be deployed in that area of PoK. Its will shorten the route for China’s energy imports from the Middle East by about 12,000 km. Tariq Ghafoor was driving in his vehicle that came under indiscriminate fire on Ring Road on Friday.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Washington would review the incident and, if it is confirmed, raise it in the U.N.
The presenter said it was a medium-range Qiam-1 missile, and the test took place in the early hours of Tuesday.
Recent work has focused on improving the missiles’ accuracy, which experts say will make them more effective with conventional warheads. If you require further details regarding the transaction data, please contact the supplier directly.
