Indian plot exposed behind the New Zealand cricket team departure from Pakistan
ISLAMABAD – Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry Wednesday exposed the Indian plot that prompted New Zealand to call off a tour of Pakistan.
Speaking in a presser in the country’s federal capital, Fawad said fake emails, which were originated from India, were behind the cancellation of the historic Pakistan tour. The minister said it all started with a fake post by a user who claimed to be Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan militant Ehsanullah Ehsan.
A fake account created by a TTP member’s name told the visitors to refrain from playing matches as they could be ‘targeted’.
Following the false post,* The Sunday Guardian* published an article claiming that the team may face a terror threat in the South Asian country, the article used the fake post for the phony claims.
He said *The Sunday Guardian* was founded by a former Indian minister for external affairs who is also a close ally of Indian PM Modi. He also mentioned ties between the bureau chief of the Indian publication and former Afghan VP Amrullah Saleh.
Chaudhry went on to say that, Kiwis opener Martin Guptill's wife also got an email in which she was threatened from an account of Tehreek-i-Labbaik. He also mentioned that this email is not affiliated with any social media network and was purportedly created for this act. He also mentioned that the email was sent via ProtonMail, a secure service.
The ruling party minister said Kiwis came to Pakistan despite the threats however a second email was sent to the Black Caps under the name of Hamza Afridi.
Authorities after a detailed probe reveal that it was sent from a device associated with India. Adding that, it’s the same device that had 13 other IDs, the majority of which were Indian names.
