Bugti orders arrest of security men guarding laborers

QUETTA: Sarfraz Bugti, the provincial home minister of Baluchistan, has ordered the arrest of the police and paramilitary soldiers who were meant to be guarding the laborers, he told reporters in Quetta.

“I would have raised my head in pride had any of the policemen or paramilitary soldiers died or been injured while resisting the attack, but I feel ashamed to say that they fled,” he said.

He added that army helicopters had been dispatched to the area to transport the dead to their home towns.

“I would request that the government extend the ongoing military offensive against religious militants to ethnic militants too,” he said referring to the military operation against Taliban insurgents in the country’s restive northwest.

“I strongly condemn the action of Baluchistan Liberation Front, they should be ashamed to call themselves nationalists, they are terrorists and the group’s leader, who happens to be a doctor, is an insult to the profession,” the minister said.
