“Conduct of census is a national obligation. Sacrifice of precious lives of civil enumerators and soldiers is beyond any doubt a great sacrifice,” Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said while quoting the COAS.

“These sacrifices will only strengthen our resolve and with the support of entire nation, we will cleanse the menace of terrorism from our soil,” Gen Bajwa said.

“My heart goes to bereaved families and my highest tributes to martyrs who laid their lives in the line of duty,” he added.
