Islamabad, Dec 22 - Former Pakistan interior minister Rehman Malik has said that Afghan intelligence agency is supporting the Pakistan Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah, Geo News reported Monday.

Pakistan Taliban is also known as Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

The Pakistan Peoples Party leader also said that the fugitive TTP chief found refuge in Afghanistan whenever he wished.

I have repeatedly been saying a foreign hand is involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan, Malik said, adding that he had also briefed the Senate that the Afghan intelligence agency was backing militant commander Faqir Muhammad and Fazlullah.

Malik said nobody was ready to accept his claim about the presence of Punjabi Taliban but it was good to see that the Punjab government was now undertaking action against terrorists.
