TTP struck again, killed many security personnel and freed 250 of their criminal prisoners. It was an attack absolutely similar to what had happened at Bannu jail a year ago. Who to blame? Everybody knows that jails in Pakistan are hub of corruption, with all the staff from top to bottom involved in making money.

What was the reaction of the current government? They condemn the attacks and constitute committees; what a farce! The only way to deal with such lapses is; dismiss the IG prisons and the entire staff of the affected prison. Not only that, but the officials should be arrested and put behind the bars for corruption and negligence of duty. May be then the concerned quarters will take note.
