After Wagah Blast, Taliban threatens India

New Delhi, Nov 05: Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamaat Ahrar (TTP-JA), a new Pakistani Taliban group, which was behind the Wagah blast that claimed over 60 lives leaving more than 200 people injured in Pakistan, on Wednesday threatened India its next target.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, a prominent militant and spokesperson for the group TTP-JA, said that he has warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi that attacks in India were in the pipeine.

"I have already conveyed it to Modi ... that if our suicide bombers can carry out attacks on this side of the border, they can easily do it on other side of the border in India," he told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.

"I told him that his hands are red with the blood of Kashmiri mujahideen (fighters) and innocent people of Gujarat for which he would have to pay the price."

He earlier tweeted in English: "You (Modi) are the killer of hundreds of Muslims. We wl (will) take the revenge of innocent people of Kashmir and Gujarat" (sic). An Indian intelligence official said the account appeared genuine.

Ehsan said however that the Sunday attack on Wagah border was specifically aimed at the Pakistani military.

The authenticity of the tweets could not be immediately verified and then did not show on Ehsan's Twitter page as of Wednesday morning.
