A suspect in one of the assassination attempts on President Gen Pervez Musharraf had been cleared by Pakistani security agencies for good conduct after his release from prison in Afghanistan.

Jameel (23), a hardcore Jaish-e-Mohammed militant, was captured by Afghan security forces in an injured condition soon after the ouster of the Taliban and was handed over to Pakistan security forces along with 29 other militants.

Pakistani security agencies had cleared him after questioning by the Joint Interrogation Team in April 2002. The JIT had concluded that the suspect was not involved in any anti-state activity and nothing adverse had been found against him, Islamabad daily The Dawn reported.

Jameel, a native of Torarh in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, had attended militant training camps in Rishkore near Kabul when the Taliban was in power and was actively involved in carrying out several terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, the paper said.

He was identified two days ago after police found his partially damaged face at the site of the December 25 suicide attack on Musharraf in Rawalpindi. The other suicide bomber has been identified as an Afghan from the ranks of jihadi groups active in the North West Frontier Province.
