Same rangers, Same police and law and order being a provincial subject, the question is that when two provincial Home Ministers failed to curb the target killing how the federal Interior Minister has successfully controlled the killing. Can someone shed light on this question.

"One person was killed in a road side firing incident"

When an innocent person is killed by an armed rogue, it is not an incident but it isTERRORISM.

I wonder, if it was also a part of the Eid celebration with Religious Fervour?
