Quetta: Hundreds lose lives in sectarian, ethnic and tribal violence; Samaa TV

Staff Report

QUETTA: Unending spell of sectarian, ethnic, tribal and tribal violence has claimed hundreds of innocent lives in Quetta in recent years.

On the other hand, police have blamed non-cooperation from the public for their failure to prevent such attacks.

Thousands of people have fallen prey to target killings, sectarianism, ethnic and tribal clashes and other violent incidents in the provincial capital of Balochistan.

According to official figures, 380 people were killed in 2008, 333 in 2009 and 318 were targeted in 2010. Over the first seven months of the current year, more than 200 people have already lost their lives. But police say their performance is satisfactory.

Experts say that police should be empowered to curb the crimes in Balochistan so that peace could be restored in the restive province. SAMAA
