Malik orders immediate arrest of coast guards killers
[Dawn] Senior Advisor to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik
Pak politician, Interior Minister under the Gilani government. Malik is a former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) intelligence officer who rose to head the FIA during Benazir Bhutto's second tenure. Malik was tossed from his FIA job in 1998 after documenting the breath-taking corruption of the Sharif family. By unhappy coincidence Nawaz Sharif became PM at just that moment and Malik moved to London one step ahead of the button men. He had to give up the interior ministry job because he held dual Brit citizenship.
Sunday ordered all law enforcement agencies to immediately arrest the myrmidons who had killed seven coasties attacking their camp in Gwadar.
The interior advisor has condemned the killing in Balochistan
...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...
and ordered the authorities concerned to bring all culprits to justice without any delay.
Rehman Malik also directed the Director General Pakistain Coast Guards to review the security arrangements for the PCG officers and officials deputed in Gwadar and take steps for their foolproof security.
He also enquired about the details of the incident and suggested the compensation packages for the victims families in recognition of guards services and sacrifices.
The Balochistan Liberation Army has grabbed credit for the attack.
