NACTA proscribes Jammat-ul Ahrar, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi AlAlami
ISLAMABAD - National Anti-Counterterrorism Authority (NACTA) has proscribed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi AlAlami and Jammat-ul-Ahrar on Saturday.

According to Geo news, the move came after both the militant organisations took responsibility of series of suicide attacks in Baluchistan and Punjab.

Jamaatul Ahrar (JuA) was formed as a result of split in Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in August 2014.

The group involved in various terror attacks included military, law enforcement agencies, government buildings, lawyers, and religious and ethnic minorities.

Lashkar-i-Jhangvi al AlAlmi is a splinter group of banned Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LeJ) involved in sectarian violence in Pakistan, particularly in Quetta and Karachi.

The group claimed responsibility for attacking Police Training Academy in Quetta on October 25 in which 61 cadets were killed.

As per details, the notification of ban was issued on November 11.
