GWADAR: Police claimed to have seized ‘objectionable’ material, including books, here on Wednesday.

A police team raided Al Badar Bookshop and news agency, seized a number of books on Balochistan and the Baloch people and arrested Khuda Bakhsh, a salesman.

“Police raided the bookshop after receiving information about objectionable books and other material kept there,” District Police Officer Pervez Umrani said.

The policemen also confiscated two well-known books on Balochistan’s history -- Lala Hatu Ram’s ‘Tariekh-i-Balochistan’ and Dr Shah Mohammad Marri’s ‘Baloch’.

A case was registered against the owner of the shop under Sections 109, 123A and 124A.

Police also seized a number of CDs from a shop on Airport Road and arrested its owner.

Two booksellers had been arrested in Turbat a day earlier.
