QUETTA: Pakistan Peoples Party leader Farhatullah Babar on Monday demanded that the killers of Professor Arman Luni must be brought to justice because without law the society could not progress.

Babar, the spokesman to former president Asif Ali Zardari, met Luni's family and offered his condolence, during a visit to Qilla Saifullah. Talking to reporters, Babar said that despite many days to the incident the government has not filed FIR against the police officer, who tortured to death the activist.

“It shows negligence of the provincial government,” he said. “Killing of a man who was part of a peaceful protest against terrorism would increase sense of insecurity among the masses”. He added that injustice with Luni’s family might increase such incidents in the country. He demanded that FIR should be lodged against the officer involved in the killing of activist.

On the performance of the incumbent government, the PPP leader said: “Unfortunately ‘selected governments’ have been imposed at the Center and in Balochistan. Without true representatives of the people, uncertainty would continue to prevail in the country”.
