KARACHI: Pakistan’s intelligence agencies have informed the government that the outfits banned in Pakistan and abroad were gaining momentum due to the supply of capital in the form of domestic and international currency, a BBCUrdu report said.

According to a secret report obtained by BBCUrdu, the outfits were operating through proxy bank accounts in Pakistan in which transactions were taking place at the national and international level.

Organisations such as Jaish-i-Mohammad, Tehrik-i-Islami, Millat-i-Islamia Pakistan, Ghazi Force, Hizbut Tahrir, Jamiatul Furqan and Khairunnisa International Trust were operating bank accounts using varying identities, the report said.

The report indicated fears that these banned outfits could regain strength through this process.

Some of these banned outfits are also working under the cover of the social organisations, the report said.

In the light of this information, the interior ministry has ordered the monitoring of suspected bank accounts.

Earlier, the government had frozen bank accounts that were being operated by 24 banned outfits.

Moreover, banks accounts belonging to four outfits that were banned by the United Nations had also been frozen by the government.
