    This is all drama. Everybody knows who is behind extortion and kidnapping for ransom but they are just fooling all of us. Some elements in security establishment, PPP, PML-N and ANP likes to see Karachi in Blood. They just love it.

    He can be treated as innocent despite acting as the Don of the Peace Lovers. His team is commissioned to perform some tasks, but by who?

    Now the criminal community and their apologists will suddenly remember Human Rights. These people need to learn to follow the rule of law, they have lived in the criminal umbrella for too long. Without PPP giving him protection, Uzair Baloch is nothing.
