Gilgit, April 13: Paramilitary forces and police started a search operation in Chilas, the headquarters of Diamer district, to arrest people involved in mob violence which led to the targeted killing of Shia passengers 10 days back. Around 200 soldiers of the GB Scout and policemen conducted raids in different parts of Chilas to arrest the culprits.

It is pertinent to note that a state of curfew has been haunting residents of Gilgit city since April 3, when around two dozen people were killed in Gilgit and Chilas in apparently sectarian clashes.

Pakistan Army has since then held control of Gilgit city, where tens of people belonging to the Shia and Sunni sects have been arrested. Weapons have also been recovered, according to sources.
