QUETTA: Quetta CCPO Dawood Junejo’s status has been converted to OSD over the controversial shootout in which five Chechen nationals were gunned down last week.

According to reports, CCPO Quetta, Dawood Junejo’s status was changed to “On Special Duty” as a judicial probe investigates the incident that took place at Kharotabad last week. Additional IG Ghalib Bandisha will take charge as the new CCPO of Quetta.

The move has come after the Bomb Disposal Squad submitted its report to the Balochistan IG which says that suicide jackets were not recovered from the foreigners, who were killed on Tuesday.

However, five hand grenades pins, two stop watches, a bottle of shampoo, 50 non-electric detonators, and eight passports were seized when their car was checked at the Kili Khaizai check post.

Earlier, an autopsy report revealed that the foreigners died due to gunshots, and not by an explosion.

    @Dr Khan:
    My dear you forgot to mention that they had a bottle of shampoo too…….
    They were going to use shampoo instead of dynamite, while attaching the 50(so called) non electric detonators to the bottle of shampoo and finally adding five pins to it. Then they had a plan to go in the city….to pull 4 pins on each of the four corners and finally to pull the last 5th pin in the center of Quitta and as a result Quitta was going to blow like NAGA SAKI ?????
    You are genius Dr. Khan !!!
    These ——- can stop and kill only unarmed people like this family of 5 people, including a father, 2 sons, one mother and the young 7 months pregnant daughter ?
    Only an evil man can murder a pregnant women who already got couple of shots in the body and crying for help!!!!

    Do you know the difference between killing and Murder ?????Recommend

    Dear Sajid,
    Our army can aonly kill innocent people.They cannot protect us from foreign droan attacks happening everyday rather then they kill these 6 members of the beautiful family without listening to them. May Allah bless their souls and give some ”aqal” to Mr. Khan.Recommend
