The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has said that is had no hand in the attack on an Islamabad court Monday that claimed 11 lives, including that of a judge.

A TTP spokesman, speaking to media from an undisclosed location, said that the outfit had nothing to do with the two suicide attacks since it had announced a month-long ceasefire to resume peace talks with the government, The News International reported.

He said that all the groups operating under the umbrella of the TTP were obliged to follow the orders of Taliban's chief Mullah Fazlullah.
