One of India and Pakistan’s most wanted terrorists, Malik Ishaq was killed in a police ‘encounter’.
Have to hand it to the police – they accomplished what a decade of military rule couldn’t do under Musharraf, or even when Nawaz essentially gave the Army carte blanch to take on terrorists. For someone who regularly boasted of killing Pakistani’s left right and center, it’s amazing how much support Malik Ishaq kept getting from the Sharif brothers.
Malik Ishaq was going to meet a foul end sooner or later, it’s tragic that despite having him in and out of custody for so many years the Pakistan govt. never thought to hand him over to India. Now that would have been a diplomatic ice breaker extraordinaire.
