Islamabad: Iran has stepped up pressure on Pakistan to crack down on terrorists, days after Islamabad announced the arrest of the chief of Jundallah, a sectarian Muslim group which carries out cross-border attacks inside Iranian territory.
Welcoming the capture of Abdul Rauf Rigi, a senior Iranian official, however, said Pakistan needs to deal with terrorists sternly. Rigi was captured in Pakistan on Friday.
He became chief of Jundullah after his brother Abdul Malik Rigi was hanged by Iran earlier this year.
The arrest was made after Iran pressured Pakistan to crack down on terrorists operating from its soil in the wake of a deadly suicide attack in the Iranian city of Chabahar. — PTI
