Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud has written a letter to the sister of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani convicted for attempted murder by an American court, saying he would carry out a “memorable” attack against the US.
The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan chief “threatened a memorable response against the United States” in the letter he wrote to Fouzia Siddiqui nearly two months ago, a private News channel reported.
On the basis of this letter, the channel contended that Hakimullah may have had a hand in the botched car bombing in New York City that resulted in the arrest of Pakistan-American Faisal Shahzad.
In the letter, Hakimullah declared the sister of the incarcerated Aafia Siddiqui as his own sister and assured her of all possible cooperation.
Threatening the US, he announced his intention to teach the country a “lesson”.
