Excellent news. Looks like the depoliticizing of our police has begun. All known and suspected terrorists and bhatta khors need to be off our streets as today they are the biggest cause for us being dragged into darker ages. These people should be put into a separate high security facility and tried martial law style where the annonimity of judges, prosecuters and witnesses is maintained, and indictment and subsequent punishment is swift without any chance for appeals.
