Arrest of Uzar baloch is achievement of govt: Pervaiz Rashid

LAHORE: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid stated that arrest of Uzair Baloch is the reflection of commitment made by Prime Minister to nab every criminal, TheNewsTribe.com reported.

While talking to media persons he said that  terrorist attempts have declined substantially due to intelligence successes against terrorists.

He said Pakistan will cooperate with other countries to control terror related incidents and is ready to share our experience with them for the benefit of the region.

On a question he replied that the Minister said Pakistan wants to carry forward dialogue with India but terrorist attempt derailed the process.

Earlier,  Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC) on Saturday has handed over head of Lyari Gang war, Uzair Jan Baloch to Rangers for 90 days remand.

Baloch, who was arrested on outskirts of Karachi earlier in the day, was produced before ATC judge Farooq Shah amid heightened security.

Rangers pleaded 90-day physical remand of the accused, a request which was granted by the court.

The court also allowed the formation of a joint instigation team (JIT) to grill Uzair Baloch.

With head-money of Rs.5 million, the main character of Lyari gang war is facing over 55 cases of murders, kidnappings, extortion and terrorism.
