Condemns security agencies for harassing innocent people and disregarding the sanctity of Chardiwari/Chadar
Aliabad, August 28: President of PPP Hunza Chapter, Fida Karim, has resigned from his position in protest against random detention of tens of people in different parts of Central Hunza. He has said that raids are being conducted in middle of the night and no respect is being shown for the local traditions and the sanctity of Chadar and Chardiwari (terms associated with religious, cultural and traditional privacy).
Karim has blamed his party of taking revenge from political opponents in the guise of law enforcement.
It is pertinent to note that around 11 people were recently released by courts in Gilgit due to lack of evidence, confirming the reports that the government is making random arrests, without any proper planning.
At least 25 people have been arrested so far by the police in reaction to the riots that erupted after the broad daylight murder of two innocent IDPs by the Hunza Police, while they were peacefully protesting on arrival of Chief Minister.
More arrests to follow
Aliabad: In the meanwhile, Finance Minister Akhtar has said that more arrests will be made in the future. He has urged the people to stay calm and show patience, while the government tries to establish its writ in the peaceful region.
600,000 in compensation for murder and promises of justice
Aliabad: Wazir Baig has said that those responsible for the murder of the two IDPs will not be spared by the law. He has said that people should wait for the result of the judicial investigation. Baig visited family of the assassinated IDPs and gave 2 cheques worth 600,000 rupees to widow of Shaheed Sher Ullah Baig and Shaheed Sher Afzal.
