After a brief lull, Balochistan is shocked with gunshots and in this connection, in Kohlu on Saturday, the security forces carried out an operation against members of the outlawed Baloch Liberation Army (Harbyar), during which nine terrorists were killed and three others were detained. Since the explosion in Kohlu Bazaar on September 30, according to a press release from Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), intelligence services have been searching for these terrorists, and the bust of the fresh group is a big success. Two bystanders lost their lives in this incident, while 19 others were hurt. The same group and its terrorists took responsibility for the attack; moreover, the gang had a history of extortion, attacks on security personnel, and kidnappings for ransom in the area. These terrorists also attacked construction workers and engineers in Kohlu.
Other than Balochistan, Punjab is another front where action based on intelligence led to the capture of nine militants by Punjab’s Counter-Terrorism Department. From their possession, two IED bombs, 2,768 explosives, and 13 detonators have been found. For a very long time, the province of Balochistan has served as the focal point of the evil plans of nationalist forces. These are the individuals and groups that are antagonistic to the state and who receive funding and support from India. They commit acts of terrorism inside the nation. Operations against these elements are still being conducted by the Pakistan Army and other security organisations. It is crucial, but in addition, our government and other relevant institutions will need to implement a similar plan on a political and administrative level so that the province’s poor can obtain their legal rights. This will not only increase these people’s trust in the government and its institutions, but it will also provide them with a sense of security. As a result, they will opt to integrate into society rather than fall prey to any malicious propaganda.
