Pakistan arrests 44 suspects over Pulwama attack

Pakistani officials have caught dozens of suspects over the suicide bombing in Indian Kashmir that killed forty troops.

They included the brother of the head of the outlawed Jaish-e-Mohammad group, which India has blamed for the attack on February 14.

The bombing caused a dangerous escalation of pressures that last week made Pakistan and India close to all-out war over the disputed region of Kashmir.

Pakistan said on Tuesday it had started a crackdown on Islamist militant teams, detaining 44 people of banned institutions which includes close relatives of the head of a group blamed for a deadly bombing in Indian-controlled Kashmir last month.

Pakistan’s Interior Ministry said 44 suspects were imprisoned, including Mufti Abdul Rauf, brother of the group’s leader Masood Azha.
