ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Monday vowed to track down the perpetrators of terrorist attack in Islamabad’s district courts and bring them to justice.
“It is condemnable and a painful incident. We are investigating it from different angles and will reach to the bottom,” he said speaking on an adjournment motion in the National Assembly.
Nisar said, “The issue is not simple, because the attackers are from our ranks. When the enemy is open, it is easy to confront it. But, when it is hidden among us, it becomes very difficult”.
He presented some initial findings before the House, but stated that giving all findings might affect the investigation. The matter was also subjudice as the Islamabad High Court had taken a suo moto notice. “Please wait for a few days. I shall come out with all details”.
He said the police and civil military forces were required to be further trained for fighting the proxy war. “They are prepared for conventional war. But, this situation is different. Therefore, we are training our civil military forces and the police”.
The minister appealed to the parliamentarians not to describe any such incident as failure of the government. “This will encourage our opponents. Any scattered incident cannot be described as a failure as a whole. Our resolve is firm and we shall fight out terrorism with valour, consistency and commitment. Nobody should doubt it”.
