In the interview, Ahmadzeb said, “The attack on Malala was scripted way before the incident.”

“She [Malala] was shot in the head but no bullet was found in [the] CT scan in Swat. But yes, then the bullet got stuck in her head in CMH Peshawar,” the MNA later said in a tweet.

Malala was shot by TTP in Swat when she was returning from her school. She was taken to CMH from where she was sent to London for further medical treatment.

After the attack, TTP spokesperson Ehsan Ullah Ehsan also accepted the responsibility of the attack, saying that Malala was a ‘Western-minded girl’.

Ehsan Ullah Ehsan called her crusade for education rights an “obscenity”. He said if she survived, there would be further attacks on her life.

Zeb also alleged that people who gave medical treatment to Malala were given plots by the government later on.

“I am breaking my silence because of my inner conscience,” said Zeb.

She further stated that she would have remained silent but someone had tweeted that Zarmina Wazir, who topped CSS examination in Federal Administered Tribal Area (FATA), was inspired from Malala Yousafzai because of which she decided to reveal the ‘truth’
