PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has requested the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) police to nominate US and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the First Information Report (FIR) filed on November 22, Express News reported on Monday.

The request was given to K-P Inspector General (IG) Nasir Khan Durrani by PTI Central Secretary Legal Affair’s Barrister Suleman Afridi.

An FIR of the Hangu drone strike, which killed six persons including a Taliban commander, was filed against unidentified persons in Hangu on November 22. This is the first FIR of its kind in Pakistan.

PTI’s media cell issued a statement on Monday, according to which IG Durrani has ordered that the police investigation of the Hangu drone strike FIR case be initiated. The IG has also directed officers to thoroughly investigate the points raised in the request, states PTI’s media cell.

In the request, Afridi references the foreign ministry’s official statement, a detailed report by the Washington Post and the orders of the Peshawar High Court on drone strikes.

Hangu strike

On November 21, a drone had fired four missiles at a madrassa in Hangu, killing six people and injuring at least eight others.

Also, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Sami and Defence Council of Pakistan (DPC) Chief, Samiul Haq had said yesterday while talking to media at Mardan Press Club that PTI Chairman Imran Khan should nominate US President Barack Obama in the FIR filed against the drone strike in Hangu.

    Once the US stop flying drones over wild wild west, and when there would be nobody to take care of the terrorists hiding in FATA, when the Talibans become sure that drones are not going to take them out, only then Pakistan will face the full wrath of their terrorist activities. People like Imran Khan can always go to London and take refuge in the palaces like homes of their ex wives and lovers (this guy enjoyed his youth in the glittering cities of Europe and now the Oxford educated has become a pious Muslim and a proponent of Iqbal’s philosophy), but the lives of the poor people of this country will be completely at the mercy of Talibans.

    Why they are not demanding that the Military stop receiving Aid and doles from the US ? Once Pakistan decides its citizens will pay all Taxes, they can refuse to take Aid and subsequently shoot down the Drones. When Pakistan is being paid to target terrorists and stop providing safe happen, it is accepting the money and not doing the job, forcing the donors to spend even more money and use Drones. End the duplicity by politely refusing Aid and then decide to shoot Drones down is the correct way to go about it. How can anyone have their cake and eat it too ?Recommend

    Imran Khan a brave man and a straight forward person. The only politician who raise voice against Drone attacks on the real ground and oppose the government policy by peaceful protesting. He is not a person sitting in drawing room and negotiating with US for dealing on our land where our innocent people are killing every day by terrorism and drone attacks, a game to get dollars and raise foreign personnel bank accounts. Why US govt. feels that this land is no man land because here the government and Bureaucracy have no respect for our home land, every powerful person just spending his term to get personnel benefits from either side and at the end again coming in middle of common people on the name of Election to get seat and start his old game for 5 years. KPK province majority population shown a revolution in the past election to elect PTI members for a hope to bring a bright future, safety and security in this region but at that time our country men like from other provinces thought that our old leaders could bring the change that’s why they selected other parties members in majority and down PTI to give a clear way to other parties that’s why today we are facing this central government where we does’t feel any new changing until now and hopefully they will finished 5 years with the same style to let our country in the darkness. So it’s the time to recognize our true leader Imran Khan , who can bring a change by standing in front line to address our problems , react with sincerity, plan with honesty and execute the real solution of our problem by confidence and braveness.Recommend

I,have same sympathy with our Armed forces which i have for our poor people….why are we creating differences and different standards….one for our Army and another for our innocent poor people who are killed alongwith the terrorists…. we have make every effort to expose which group under TTP are willing to talk peace and who are against it…..we should then do every thing possible to sit across and discuss peace like the Afghans are doing…so why cant we ? why América or Govt of Afghanistan is creating a wedge and pitting one group to fight another….and in the bargain our country is sufferring….when Afghan govt has the cheek to ask ,us for our help in arranging Talibans for their peace talk, why our govt not do same with them ? If América or Afghanistan govt do not facilitate us in talking peace, we should not assist them also….peace in Pakistán is as important as peace in Afghanistan, but our PMs have always spoken only peace in Afghanistan….there should be two way traffic….there should be simultaneous peace talks in Pakistán and Afghanistan….it need political will from our leaders…..

    Okay Einsteins, here is how it goes: A drone from a long term “friend” and “non Nato Ally” who is still spewing foam from the mouth in rage and revenge, drops a bomb at a house in Pakistan’s territory; it kills ten people, only one of which may be a “high value target”, euphemism for all males 16 years and over with a beard. The coordinates are often provided by our own government. The Pathans get infuriated; they declare revenge (Badal) like their US Rambo comrades have, although Rambos’ revenge should have been against the Saudis. Haha, just kidding, there are obvious problems with that scenario called “buy oil, sell weapons.”. The Pathans can’t shoot the drones because their “old friend” has taken all the Stingers back that they had given to the Mujahideens to fight the ungodly Russians in defense of their common Abrahamic faiths against infidels who believed neither in Christ, the Saviour, nor in the holy scriptures. So the desperate Pathan take their wrath out, using ammonium nitrate, on innocent Pakistanis who, by virtue of their government’s shameful silence and tacit approval, are complicit in their murder. TTP finds new recruits and mutters more inanities about Sharia’h, this that and the other; the Afghan Taliban laugh at the helplessness of our government that stabbed them in the back a la Mullah Zaeef. Terrorism spreads, people get afraid, investors run away, poverty spreads, crime rises, revenues drop, IMF gets cocky, politicians go to Jeddah for Umrah then Harrod’s for shopping, come back and call yet another APC to develop yet another “national consensus” on drones. Rinse and repeat the cycle! Unfortunately, Imran Khan has spoiled this game. What a spoiler this chap is! Accha bhulla dhanda lugga hua hai sub ga; bharr mein gai awam and those stinking Pathans.

    @numbersnumbers: “30,0000 Pakistanis slaughtered”.
    Dear numbers,
    I am absolutely certain that in your last missive it was 40.000 slaughtered Pakistanis. Like the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, etc, etc, etc, I am still waiting for accurate sources of information when you make dogmatic statements. I have a feeling I will be waiting a long time. This may be our last contact until next year. If you are a Christian have a great Christmas. Otherwise, have a happy New Year.

    @faysal:
    What about 500million USAID???

    Rather what about $50 billion dollars spent due to US war. What about the damaged economy? It was started by US, taliban, al-qaeda were created by US so US pay the price

    @Sexton Blake:
    Obviously you could go to Wikipedia and search for “terrorism in Pakistan” to see a listing of most (if not all) significant terrorist attacks in Pakistan since 2001!
    I believe that links lead to the casualties suffered in each terrorist attack over the years!

    @numbersnumbers:
    Dear numbers,
    If you have the so called terrorist attack figures at hand why don’t you print them instead of criticizing other peoples contributions all the time without providing supporting evidence for your theories. I do not object to being proven wrong.
