It is pertinent to mention here that PTM leader Ali Wazir had in a public meeting issued threats to the state institutions.
Commenting on the incident Haris Nawaz, an analyst, has urged for arrest of the accused PTM leader Mohsin Dawar and others involved in attack on the forces check post.
Mohsin Dawar, Manzoor Pashteen and others who are talking against Pakistan should be arrested so as they realize that the state could punish those who speak against the state, Haris Nawaz said.
They should be tried in military courts and awarded sentences over their offence, the analyst added.
