  3. Why should the federal interior minister be telling people of GB regarding who is or is not behind brutal killings? Why is GB CM not doing his job? Is he incapable? and why are two ministers taking responsibility of getting murderers from jirga. This all speaks of corruption, inability to offer law and justice to our people and fact that all these people are protecting each other. WHo are these ministers? do they have interest or links in these areas.
    If the culprits have been identified then the police and army should go into these areas today:
    They should not tolerate minute of delay
    They should not have listen to or be dictated by any jirga
    They should arrest all directly AND indirectly involved
    They should arrest all who have harbored these animals
    The culprits should be presented in court of law and tried fairly
