QUETTA: Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing by a motorcyclist who has attacked a vehicle killing six including four Balochistan Constabulary (BC) personnel and injuring 17 near GPO Chowk at Zarghoon Road today some 300 meters from the Provincial Assembly.

It is yet not clear as to who the bomber wanted to target: The members of the Assembly who were leaving after attending the session or the BC personnel?

It is pertinent to mention here that pundits at the helm of affairs are wondering about the relationship between resignation of CM and the explosion.

Commenting on the issue Member Provincial Assembly PB-24 (Dera Bugti) Sarfraz Bugti has took to the twitter proclaiming fight against terrorism will continue despite the change of government:

IG Balochistan, while confirming death of seven, held that the attacker came from across the border.  Meanwhile, forensic experts, who said that 8 to 10 kg explosives were used in the attack, are examining parts of the bomber’s body and the scene of crime to ascertain the intensity of the blast.

Kasur’s Serial-Killing-Pedophile still at large: Relatives of eight (raped and murdered) girls appear before SC!

Published

on

LAHORE: Parents and relatives of those eight girls who had been raped and murdered in Kasur since 2015 appeared before the SC bench at the registry here today asking for justice. 

On request from the investigation agencies, the CJP has given them 72 hours to nab the culprit. The three-member bench headed by CJP is hearing a suo motu case of the rape & murder of Zainab, whose body was found from a garbage heap in Kasur on ninth day of this month. Court took notice the very next day. 

The bench – that has again been told that eight girls had so far been raped and murdered in Kasur by one single pedophile serial killer (as per DNA reports) – reiterated that if the Police had taken action back in 2015 (when the first murder was reported)  lives of other seven kids could have been saved.

The court asked what the police was doing while so many incidents were taking place repeatedly within the remit to two police stations?

Court, unsatisfied by the ongoing investigation, has asked why the SHO not removed despite repeated incidents and complaints from citizens. 

Cynics go haywire wondering:

i) How could the nation expect any professional action from policemen who themselves had bought the job under the very noses of those who lament inaction? (Reportedly one can buy a constable’s job for half a million rupees, become ASI paying three and a half million and so on and so forth);

II) The Police Stations are sold; Extra-Judicial Killings are rampant; Policemen drawing meagre salaries live in palatial houses’

iii) The very moment a person enters a court (no matter which) he/she pays his way right from the lowest clerk to the highest authority to get his file move. How could court that has failed to weed-out corruption from the very institution it operates in expect imandaree from Police or other institutions?

When the court was told that tissues was acquired of 800 possible suspects for DNA tests, Police has been asked to use its conventional methods to nab the culprits instead of acquiring tissues of 21 million Pakistanis for DNA tests.
