Sharing further details, Warraich said that in the month of January around 33 cases of explosives were filed and over 30 persons were arrested.

Point the missiles which you have been testing in the direction of the foreign hands who are behind this carnage. We are spending billions in defence and complain of foreign hands? Who are these foreign hands? Are we so weak that we cannot stop this bloodshed. Stop making excuses and show some resolve and wipe this menace out once and for all. We are not paying taxes to hear excuses
