They need strong, very strong intelligence and superior crack security force to root out any foreingn or Indian infiltration causing mystery killings that even the police force cannot identify and grab at it, but instead they get killed themselves. How could the criminals escape and do not get chased and caught or intercepted by the next check post. It looks like security has been too immobile in both Quetta and the entire Balochistan for much much too long.
