Abduction of a doctor is extremely shameful act and shows that the Provincial government has completely failed to protect the lives and property of the people and the CM should immediately resign. The law and order situation in Baluchistan is far from satisfactory. It appears that there is no government in the province Army should immediately control the situation in Baluchistan as police and other law enforcing agencies have completely failed in controlling the criminals. This should be done immediately before total collapse of the civil administration. There is no other alternative to control the situation in the province now.
