SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association)

The government of Sindh has ordered law enforcement agencies “to ensure extreme vigilance” and take “special measures” as the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari faces threats to his life from outlawed group Jundallah.

The provincial government in what was intended as a confidential letter shared intelligence of a plan being made by the banned group to target the PPP chairperson.

However, the leaked letter stated that details regarding the date, time, place and method of the attack were still unknown.

Directives by the Sindh government for additional security measures for Bilawal were sent to the headquarter of Pakistan Rangers and to the office of the Inspector General of Sindh Police.

News of the latest threat comes as Bilawal is scheduled to address supporters at the mausoleum of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah on Oct 18 — the day when the homecoming caravan of his mother and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was attacked in twin blasts on Shahrah-i-Faisal.
