QUETTA, April 14 The Balochistan government has restored the Levies force with the same jurisdiction that it had before its merger with police, within the revenue limits of 23 of the 30 districts of the province.

An official notification issued by the home secretary on Wednesday night said “All personnel of Levies merged into police shall stand restored to the Balochistan Levies Force. All police stations meant to administer areas falling into “B” areas shall stand restored to the force with immediate effect. All movable and immovable assets handed over to the police force at the time of merger will be returned to the Levies force.”

The Levies force is already working in six districts of the province.

The provincial assembly approved the Balochistan Levies Force Bill 2010 on April 5. The cabinet had approved restoration of the force on March 5 last year.
