Senior Jaish leader arrested

As part of its continuing crackdown on Islamic militant groups, Pakistan police have arrested senior Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Hasan Barki.

Barki was arrested in Islamabad on Wednesday last night on his arrival from Bahawalpur, a town in Punjab province where the Jaish has its headquarters.

With his arrest, almost all major leaders of the terrorist outfit have been detained by the government, the Nation daily reported on Thursday.

During the past few days, Barki had been speaking to the press about his group's resolve to carry on with its militant attacks in Kashmir and elsewhere in India.

Pakistan police have already arrested the group's founding leader Maulana Masood Azhar and four of his brothers besides scores of its members in a nationwide crackdown.

All the leaders have been arrested for making inflammatory speeches.

Lashkar-e-Tayiba founding leader Hafeez Muhammad Saeed was also arrested, a few days after he said that he had quit the leadership of the militant outfit.

India has blamed both Jaish-e-Mohammed and the Lashkar-e-Tayiba for the December 13 attack on Parliament.

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf is expected to announce stringent measures against militant groups in his address to the nation planned later this week.
