Everyday, we are told about so many militants being killed and so many injured in spats with the security forces. The public would like to know who counts the dead/wounded in the crossfire and who ensures the dead are given a proper burial? The public would like to know how many militants in total were killed this year and how many of our soldiers were martyred. -COL (Retd) R.M. AKHTAR, Lahore, September 8.
