Notorious Takfiri Taliban terrorists of the Hakeemullah group, claimed responsibility for the attack in a phone call to Reuters reprorter, saying Khurram Zaki had been targeted for his stance against radical cleric Abdul Aziz.
The call made by Qari Saifullah alias Gillaman , Spokesman Of Shehreyar Mehsud Group Of Notorios Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on late Sunday and also threatened to target other journalists of slain Khurram Zaki’s office.
Security observers believed that the claim made by the notorious TTP was nothing but to protect the local culprits of Takfiri AhleSunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) formerly known as Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP). They said that The FIR was registered by the Sir Syed police under Sections 302 (premeditated murder), 324 (attempted murder), 109 (abetment) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code read with Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997 on the complaint of Jazib Qamar, who survived the attack.
According to the content of the FIR, the complaint said that Khurram Zaki was targeted at the behest of Maulana Abdul Aziz of Lal Masjid and Maulana Aurangzeb Farooqi of the ASWJ as the victim had taken part in protests against them.
The notorious banned outfit Taliban have close ties with banned AhleSunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) and its leaders Ahmed Ludhanvi and Aurangzeb Farooqi, IN the FIR of Khurram Zaki’s murder the ASWJ ring-leader Aurangzeb Farooqi nominated in the FIR on the will of martyr Khurram Zaki . Thats why the TTP claimed the responsibility of the attac to divert the investigation of Zaki’s murder and protect their allies of ASWJ and Lal-Masjid which consecutive threatened Zaki.
