Among those arrested was Raja Waqar, a policeman assigned to the office of Punjab province’s top politician. Waqar is suspected of informing al-Qaida-linked groups about the whereabouts of top government officials, a high-ranking intelligence official in the eastern city of Lahore told The Associated Press.
