Pak army on poll duty

Pakistan Army will deploy about 50,000 troops across the country to secure the general election process on May 11, which is facing a “massive terrorist threat” from the Taliban and other militant groups.

The Interior Ministry has warned of a “massive terrorist threat” during the elections as banned groups like Jandullah, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan were planning to carry out large-scale attacks in Balochistan province, especially in Quetta and Nushki.

The Taliban are reportedly planning suicide and bomb attacks on important government buildings and installations in Peshawar. Taliban fighters based at Mirali in the tribal areas might carry out attacks in Khanewal, Multan and other areas of Punjab.

Intelligence reports suggested attacks on government and semi-government buildings, installations and security personnel.
