Balochistan government to revamp security plan after Noshki attack

Calls for ensuring compensation was given to heirs of those killed within seven days

The Balochistan government has decided to revamp the security plan after a terrorist attack in Noshki killed nine labourers from Punjab.

It was decided in a Quetta meeting presided over by Chief Minister Sarfaraz Bugti on law and order in the province, according to a statement from the Minister’s Secretariat. Balochistan Inspector General Abdul Khaliq Sheikh, Chief Secretary Balochistan Shakeel Qadir Khan and other senior civil and military officers attended the meeting.

On Saturday, nine people, who planned to reach Europe to live a better life, were shot dead in Balochistan. The gunmen abducted them from a Taftan-bound bus based on their ethnicity and dumped their bodies under a bridge in a hilly area of Noshki.

The attendants of the meeting condemned the attack. They decided to comprehensively revise the security plan to prevent similar incidents in the future, the statement said.

“This war against terrorism is not only for security forces,” the statement quoted the Balochistsn CM as saying. “This war against the enemies of peace is state’s war,” he said.

“Politicians, civil armed forces, bureaucracy, judiciary, [and] media all have to fight this war,” he said and vowed to fight the war against terrorism with political responsibility and a common plan of action.

He also instructed to ensure that compensation was given to the heirs of those killed within seven days.
