ISLAMABAD - Taking strong notice of a news item about the security of 23rd March parade, Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan has expressed displeasure over Islamabad police performance, said the spokesperson of the interior ministry.

Linking the seizure of weapons during a search operation to the 23rd March parade without any concrete evidence is tantamount to creating unnecessary panic amongst the public. The minister reprimanded IGP Islamabad over this issue.

The spokesperson further said that all the law enforcement agencies are working in close coordination, day and night, for ensuring the security of 23rd March Parade.Islamabad police, the other day, had claimed foiling an attempt to attack Pakistan Day Parade while arresting two terrorists from the federal capital. The police had also claimed that huge cache of weapons was recovered from the terrorists who were planning to attack on Pakistan Day Parade.
