Those picked up for questioning reportedly belong to the Sipah-e-Sahaba, a sectarian outfit banned by the Pakistan President, Pervez Musharraf, in his January 12 speech to the nation.
Observers here are of the view that the killing has brought to light the nature of challenge faced by the Musharraf Government in tackling extremist menace within the Pakistan society.
A series of incidents, beginning with the abduction of the Wall Street Journal reporter, Daniel Pearl, on January 23 and his subsequent killing by his captors, detection of ready to operate rockets just outside the Karachi international airport a few days ago and the reported firing at a U.S. aircraft in the Sindh province on Tuesday, are all pointers to the challenges in taking on the extremists.
