FC warns of tit-for-tat action against anti-state elements

03 June, 2012

QUETTA: Balochistan Frontier Corps Inspector General Major (FC IG) General Ubaidullah Khan said on Saturday that "tit-for-tat" action would be taken against elements trying to disintegrate Pakistan and making propaganda against country's institutions.

Briefing the media over the law and order situation in Balochistan, Ubaidullah Khan said the issue of Balochistan was purely political and it should be resolved politically.

The FC IG said that terror acts had been reduced to great extent in Balochistan in the last couple of years.

However, he regretted that through a well-planed campaign, a negative propaganda was being carried out against law enforcement agencies.

"Through a propaganda campaign and target attacks, FC is being demoralised," he said.

He added there were 121 militant camps in different parts of Balochistan and 30 such camps of Baloch militants were operating in Afghanistan. He said 40 camps were being run by the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), 26 by Baloch Republican Army (BRA) and 19 by Baloch Liberation Front (BLF) and others in Balochistan.

Ubaidullah Khan said that 575 subversive incidents had occurred in the province in 2012 in which 254 people, including 57 FC personnel, two army troops and 20 policemen, had been killed, adding that 258 such incidents had been owned by Baloch militant outfits.

To a query, he dispelled the impression that FC was not obeying the provincial government and explained, "FC is a federal force and deployed at borders, however, following the request of provincial government it was deployed in different parts of Balochistan and discharging its duties in accordance with the law".

The FC IG regretted that persons involved in subversive activities "always go unpunished by courts".

To a question, he said limited force was being used in Balochistan and, therefore, militant camps still existed in the province.

He said that in the military operation of 2006-07, militant camps had been finished. However, he added, following the elections of 2008 a political government came, army was withdrawn and some cantonments were dismantled that help militants reorganise.

End.
