QUETTA - Police have arrested around 100 persons in a massive crackdown in Baloch populated areas in the provincial capital here on Tuesday.

According to police sources, following rise in incidents of target killings and bomb blasts in Quetta, police backed by personnel of Anti-Terrorist Force (ATF) and Balochistan Constabulary (BC) launched a massive crack down in different parts of Sariab including Killi Kamaloo, Killi Brauo and Village Aid and during operation arrested around 100 persons in connection with the incidents of target killings and bomb blasts.

‘Police has taken about 100 people into its custody and has also recovered arms during search operation’, a police officer told The Nation and ,added, that after investigation innocent people would be released soon. Some reports suggest that during search operation a woman identified as Ganj Bibi died when police stormed into her house to arrest her sons.

However, spokesman of police in a statement has strongly refuted the notion that wife of late Gul M and mother of Sanaullah Mengal died because of torture of police.
He said that she had died of natural death and her heirs could conduct her postmortem. Meanwhile, Baloch National Front (BNF), Balochistan National Party (BNP-Mengal) and different groups of BSO staged separate demos against the search operation outside Quetta Press Club.

They had also brought the body of woman alleging that she died due to heart attack because of fear of search operation and torture of personnel of law-enforcing agencies.
