Policemen in Quetta on duty without weapons

QUETTA: Thousands of Balochistan police personnel performed their duties without weapons on Wednesday after they were not issued arms from their headquarters for the second day running.

The provincial government had sealed the armouries of the Balochistan Constabulary, Anti-Terrorism Force and Police Training College after Monday’s violent protest by policemen demanding a raise.

Frontier Corps personnel called in by the provincial government after police’s strike were guarding the sealed police koths.

Personnel of Balochistan Constabulary and ATF were seen with batons issued to them in place of AK-47 rifles used by police in the province.

“Weapons will not be issued to the personnel of the BC, ATF and PTC until legal action is completed against policemen involved in violent protest,” a government official told Dawn.

He said that 3,000 to 3,500 personnel belonging to the three institutions had been affected by the decision. “They are performing their duties with batons.”

According to sources, there is no restriction on officers above the rank of assistant sub inspector carrying weapons.

Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani has asked acting provincial police chief Mohammad Akbar Arain to take strict action against police officials involved in violence, the sources said.

Footage from cameras installed at the gates and inside the CM’s secretariat and Governor’s House is being used for identifying personnel involved in firing and damaging property.

More cameras have been installed along the road near the Governor’s House and Chief Minister’s House.

Home Secretary Akbar Hussain Durrani said: “Investigation is under way and strict action will be taken against violent protesters.”

He said the situation was under control and no report of police protest had been received from any part of the province except Loralai, where a group of personnel had taken out a procession.

He said the violence appeared pre-planed because police recruits inducted just two weeks ago had been brought to the city from the training college.

He said a DSP and other police officials who had brought the recruits from the PTC had been arrested.

Frontier Corps personnel continued guarding important places in the provincial capital, including the governor’s and chief minister’s houses, the provincial assembly and main bazaars.

All vehicles moving on the Zarghoon Road and their occupants were checked. The Civil Secretariat and houses of the governor, the chief minister, several ministers and the chief secretary are located along the road.

The home secretary said the FC would remain in Quetta until required for maintaining peace and order. — DawnNews

Pakistan is always afraid of  Balooch  agitation for autonomy of the Province and consequently do not want to empower the Balooch Police Force as to avoid any suspected armed Police Revolt within the Police there on demand of Autonomous Baloochistan.

14 persons killed in FATA

12 Taliban militants were killed and three others injured in clashes between Salarzai laskhar (pro government Tribal militia) and militants in Chinnar village of Bajaur Agency in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) on January 27, according to Daily Times. The volunteers from the Salarzai lashkar, backed by Security Forces (SFs) were on their way to Mula Said and Chinnar areas when a group of armed militants attacked them. The SFs and members of the lashkar repulsed the attack killing 12 militants and injuring three. One trooper was killed in the attack.

Further, Taliban militants killed a pro-government lashkar leader in Bajaur Agency. The body of Malik Manaris Khan, 47, was found in Salarzai town. He was abducted on January 25 along with two other tribesmen, Malik Ali Baz and Malik Muhammad Rehman. The former is still held captive by the militants while the latter has been released.

Separately, a tribal elder, Malik Saleh Khan, had a narrow escape when a roadside bomb went off in Nawagai tehsil (revenue unit).

Meanwhile, the political administration has warned tribal chieftains of a military operation if they do not take action against terrorists who have fled Mehsud areas of South Waziristan and have taken refuge in North Waziristan.

Further, after several days of silence, rumours were once again circulating that chief of the banned militant group Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Hakeemullah Mehsud had died of fatal injuries that he had sustained in a drone attack in Shaktoi village of South Waziristan on January 14. However, sources close to Hakeemullah Mehsud denied such reports and claimed he was in good health.

Pak has evidence about India’s involvement in Balochistan: Rehman Malik, What about the Solid & Pak evidence of Indian involvement with Talibans ??

IS REHMAN MALIK AN ANTI-BALOCH INTERIOR MINISTER OF PAKISTAN ? 

rmalik

Rehman Malik speaks idiotic to bye-pass his failure to check Pak terrorism. Pakistan Authorities have to abandon this conventional Anti India Propaganda to solve our internal problems on our own. Killing of many MQM Leaders by Pakistani Force or the smashing a people’s movement in Balochistan fuels the Baloch movement without any Indian connection. A disable Rehman Malik now talks nonsense now.11baluch_600

Pakistan has “solid evidence” about India’s involvement in fomenting unrest in Balochistan province and is ready to share them with New Delhi, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Wednesday.

Islamabad has “solid evidence of India’s interference in Balochistan” and this material can be shared with Indian ministers or representatives at any forum of their choice, Malik told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting at the interior ministry.

“I invite their interior minister or anyone else (to come to Pakistan) and I will put on record all the material about India’s interference in Balochistan. I’ll prove it to the world,” he said.

Malik made the remarks in response to a question about Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s statement that a Mumbai-like attack was imminent in India.

pakistan-2009-4-12-12-20-31He said India should stop “issuing threats” every few weeks as Pakistan is capable of responding to any contingency.
 
He said Indian prime minister should share with Pakistan the information on the basis of which he had said a Mumbai-like attack is imminent.

“The prime minister of India made a statement six months ago that something similar to the Mumbai attacks will happen in India. Yesterday, he has made a statement that (an attack) is imminent. Prime Minister, I am sure you have the information or some intelligence ,” he said.pakistan-2009-4-12-12-20-27

Such a propaganda cannot solve the internal problems of  economy, civil security or the all round backwardness of Pakistan than India. The fore-runners of Pakistan made it clear that anti-Indian propaganda is the oxygen of Pak Politics. And out of this situation Pakistan  has made so many devils of the civil societies and the global humanities, now active as Taliban Frankenstein to destroy the Pakistan itself. Now, the Pakistan Interior Minister  Rehman Malik is trying to play same anti Indian card to save his face from all his iresponsibilities, fallacies and failures to restore the Pakistan’s peaceful civil life line from the vicious nexus of  Anti-Indian Terrorism and the Supportive Mechanism  in the Pakistani Adminstration and the Army. Undoubtedly, the people of  Balochistan has revolted for their reasons and sometimes very objectionable through a  Anti Pakistani Feeling which must be opposed vehemently.

But the solution never exist  in the process of absurd and  high raised propaganda against India. We may see a Rehman Malik as a research scholar with his new thesis with other solid evidence of Indian connection with the Talibans, too.

Are the above pictures of evidences carrying any potency relating to  Pak IM’s allegations against India ? If Rehman Malik tries to prove the Pro-People Baloch Movement is nothing but an Indian instigation, the Baloch people will resolute accordingly.
