QUETTA: The mandate for exercising police powers conferred upon the Frontier Corps (FC) for restoring law and order in Quetta was extended for one more month on Saturday, Express News reported.

Inspector General (IG) FC Major Gen Ubaidullah Khan said on the occasion that the FC had conducted 26 operations within the timeframe against terrorists and criminals.

He said that in these operations, they had managed to arrest many terrorists and criminals and had also recovered a great amount of arms, ammunition and explosives.

The Balochistan government had given this mandate two months ago and Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani had been directed by an apex committee to extend it for another two months.

The cabinet, however, had failed to do so despite instructions as Raisani did not bring up the issue before cabinet members and left the meeting due to low blood pressure.

A great game against Pashtuns suppression from all sides…..the game of weakening and blaming Pashtun it all front is the conspiracy against Pashtuns. Killing of FC, killing of freedom fighter of Baluchistan, law and order situation in KPK, FATA and Afghanistan using Pashtuns against Pashtuns is the of conspiracy against Pashtuns.
