Senior Pakistan army officer shot
A Brigadier and his mother were fired upon in a residential area in Islamabad, Pakistan. fortunately he survived. The terrorists are gaining ascendancy and the common man is cowering.
THE NATIONAL capital of Pakistan, Islamabad is safe no more. One may recall that last week a senior Army officer and his driver were killed in the capital in broad daylight. The officer had come on leave from Sudan where he was on UN Peace Mission.
 
Of course, before going there, he was the Deputy Director general (Military Operations) and was actively involved in planning the South Waziristan operation against the Taliban terrorists. Perhaps he was a marked man since then.

This morning (October 27), a serving army brigadier in plain clothes and his mother while returning from the local bank in an army vehicle with service markings, was fired upon by a young man. Both he and his mother survived but the window panes of the car were shattered. Panic spread in the area.

 
There were eye witnesses but their accounts of the event differed materially because they had lost coherence in thought and speech. The terrorists are gaining ascendancy and the commonman is cowering.
