A large number of civil society members, tribesmen have gathered in the Federal Capital to protest against the injustices and authorities’ failure to nab the police officer involved in the murder.President Ghani quoted Lawyers’ movement in his tweet that,”Just like Lawyers’ Community in Pakistan succeeded in their movement, I hope Pashtun Long March would also succeed in uprooting and eradicating terrorism from their region”.

A delegation of Mehsud and Wazir tribes met Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday and demanded immediate arrest of and taken to justice to those responsible for the extra-judicial killing of Naqeebullah, a native of South Waziristan.

The PM assured them that all resources would be utilized to arrest Rao Anwar and fulfil the requirements of justice.
