SHABQADAR: The house of the alleged facilitator of the Lahore bomb blast, Anwarul Haq, was demolished on Monday by a tribal Lashkar and security forces.

Officials of Bajaur Agency’s Political Administration confirmed that Anwarul Haq’s house in Loi Mamond area was demolished under the collective responsibility clause of the Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR).

Lahore bomber identified, facilitator arrested, claims Shahbaz Sharif

In a related development, security forces reportedly detained six suspects from various areas of the agency.

The tribal administration beefed up security in the entire agency besides sealing up the houses of all suspected militants.

Also on Saturday, security forces detained two brothers of Anwarul Haq for interrogation.

Earlier on Sunday, Army’s Sector Commander North Brig Kiyani urged the tribesmen to fulfill their responsibilities by handing over all suspects to the authorities.

Saleem | 5 years ago | Reply This is the least government can do to protect its citizens from terrorists. If these people don't have mercy for others then why they expect other to have for them?
Humza | 5 years ago | Reply I think that cowards who attack civilians should have to face the wrath of law. Thanks to CCTV and technology, the culprit behind the Lahore crime was caught quickly and this should be a message to criminals that they will be caught and served justice. I think that this action will serve as a strong deterrent to others. The CCTV safe city program is being expanded to other cities too which will improve overall security too it is hoped.
