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.

    amazing repsonse – “arrested many terrorists and criminals and had also recovered a great amount of arms, ammunition and explosives” – numbers seems to have evaporated and the insurgency rate have gone down “many-fold”!!! – its kinda of strange mix – we dont seem to be happy with our own citizen [forget about all the countries] – fighting [and large corss section supporting] religious insugency in KP, killing Baloch who wants ownership right for their resources, supporting proxises in one province to kill and maim the shia’s……the list seems to be nevr ending!!!!

    FC in Baluchistan and Ramgers in Sindh have done very little to bring about peace and security for a common men. Remove Ranger/FC Escort from their senior officers and see how quickly peace and security comes.
    Please ensure peace and security for all

    Iftikhar Chaudry has become mother in Law of FC and you will see him nagging against them. If FC is not required, Provincial Government should simply withdraw them. But they know that if FC is removed from Balochistan, non of them will survive for a single day.

    ObaidUllah watch out. Authority to grant Extension granted by the present provincial setup is questionable in view of the Supreme Court Interim order on Balochistan Government.

    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.
