Inspector General of Police Balochistan Muhammad Amlish Khan advocating the merger of Levies Force into Police said the classification of A and B areas was affecting the efforts being made for the restoration of peace in the province.
In an interview with APP here on Wednesday, he emphasised on his stance to abolish the difference of A and B areas which was restored after the demands of some politicians. Presently, he said, police had only five percent area and remaining 95 percent land area was governed by Levies Force. It would be a big break through if this difference is removed again.
He said several militants were killed and others were arrested in law enforcement agencies' operations in Balochistan. "So far, over 654 officials and personnel of Balochistan have embraced martyrdom in the line of duty from 2006 to onward," he added.
The IG said, "We need financial resources to ensure complete check on entrance of people from bordering areas." "Some 100 CC TV cameras are being installed in Quetta city and 83 on entry and exit points of the provincial capital. We have deployed 300 police personnel at 20 barriers in Quetta to ensure security," Amlish informed.
In reply to a query, he said Balochistan police referred 53 cases against terrorists to the Military Courts, adding the intelligence sharing had improved law and order situation and made security operation successful in Balochistan. Amlish Khan said departmental action would be taken against black sheep in police.
