“Nobody is above the law including those who have been nominated in the FIR,” he said.

In reply to a question, the chief minister said peace had been restored in Balochistan after a long struggle and unforgettable sacrifices of people, police and security forces.

“Balochistan has been bleeding because of tribal conflicts. It is the need of the hour that tribal chieftains and elders take initiatives for the solution of tribal feuds and disputes,” he said.

Mr Alyani said that his government had decided to announce 500 new posts in the Counter- Terrorism Department (CTD) to increase its human resource capabilities.

“Our forces have been sacrificing their lives in order to ensure peaceful environment in Balochistan,” he added.

The chief minister directed authorities concerned to introduce a specific text book and testing service for new recruitments in the CTD.
