Five cops to guard each candidate in KP: CM Tariq

18 April, 2013

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Caretaker Chief Minister Justice (r) Tariq Pervez convened an all-parties conference (APC) and reportedly offered five policemen to guard each candidate as part of fresh security measures adopted by the provincial government.

All major political parties taking part in the May 11 general election were unanimous to support the KP government in overcoming the security challenges and safeguarding the contesting candidates and targeted parties, JUI-F spokesman Maulana Jalil Jan, who took part in the APC, told our sources.

Pervez briefed the participants on measures his government was taking to ensure security of the contesting candidates and parties singled out by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.
