ISLAMABAD: Pakistani security forces are investigating possible links between the sole surviving militant from the army headquarters siege and an attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team earlier in the year, said officials on Sunday. Military officials said they had arrested the ringleader of the group – identified as Aqeel alias Doctor Osman. Military spokesman Maj Gen Athar Abbas said Aqeel initially managed to flee and detonated a cache of explosives, injuring five security personnel, but was eventually injured and arrested. He told AFP that Aqeel appeared to have the same name and alias as one of the terrorists wanted in connection with the March gun-and-grenade attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore.
