Coup-starting 111 brigade mysteriously deployed in sensitive locations around Islamabad
Some pictures surfaced on the social media shows some army troops patrolling in the capital. The troops deployed in the capital are allegedly the notorious 111 Brigade, but there is not sufficient information to confirm whether the troops are actually 111 brigade. So far, the location of the troops has also not been recognised yet.
In Islamabad, The brigade's last major participation was in Operation Silence, in which the heads of government ordered military police, the Pakistan Army Rangers, and the 111th Brigade to surround the Red Mosque complex.
The brigade's first involvement in toppling a government was when General Ayub Khan dismissed the government of Pakistani President Major General (retired) Iskander Mirza.
In 2010, the 111th Brigade had taken over the control of Islamabad Capital Territory and provided the intense and tight security to the both Chinese Premier andPakistan's Prime minister. The brigade was deployed by the order of Prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani, and it had directly reported to Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. The Jang News later cited that ISI had learnt that unnamed neighbouring country has planned to sabotage the Chinese Premier's state visit to Pakistan.
