Citizens’ cooperation vital to eliminate terrorism: IG KP


Inspector General Police (IGP) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Nasir Khan Durrani on Thursday said that security forces alone cannot tackle terrorism without cooperation of citizens.

Talking to media, Durrani admitted that foreign terrorists were present in KP.

He said that the number of sniffer dogs to detect explosives material would be increased to deal with the situation. “We will closely watch if locals are involved in terror activities as foreign terrorists target innocent people,” he added.

The IGP stressed the need of further legislation against terrorism and extremism. He said the police are authorised to obtain calls record of any suspect in order to trace terrorists.
