Police on Wednesday arrested seven suspects, including two patients under treatment, from a private hospital in the provincial capital of Balochistan.


According to police, on June 30, an explosive-laden vehicle was blown up in Shorawak area near the Pak-Afghan border. As a result, one person, Guldad, died on the spot while Ziaul Haq and Maqsood sustained serious wounds. The wounded were shifted to the hospital at Naushki for treatment.

Talking to the media, DIG Investigation Fayaz Sunbal said that on a tip-off, the police raided a private hospital where 7 suspects were arrested, including 2 under-treatment patients. They have been shifted to the sub-jail ward of the hospital, he added.

“The suspects belong to a banned organisation who were bringing 200 bombs and hand grenades in Pakistan for terrorist activities,” Sunbal said, adding that the arrested persons belong to Naushki area and the police are questioning them. The owner of the hospital will be investigated too.

Slowly,but surely,bureaucracy id coming to realise their duty.I fpersist,wont be long when the curse of terrorism will be eradicated. The civil society has to help the law,and so also the clerics.Then will come rectifying the propagandist education,building bridges between different communities,and keeping a tab on hate-mongrer maulvis.
