Islamabad-Vice-Chairman Pakistan Bar Council, Dr Muhammad Farogh Naseem yesterday strongly condemned the terrorist attack at Police Training College, Quetta, in which more than 58 innocent persons have been martyred while over 100 got injured seriously.

Condemning the tragic incident, the PBC vice-chairman appealed the lawyers to observe countrywide strike today (Wednesday). The lawyers, as such, while observing strike will hold protest meetings in their bar rooms and wear black bands to condemn the tragic incident. Deploring the utter failure of the federal and Balochistan governments in maintaining law and order in the province and providing security and safety to the people, they have demanded the government to arrest the culprits and bring them to book at the earliest.

While expressing solidarity with bereaved families on behalf of the legal fraternity, he emphasised the need for evolving foolproof practical strategy and plan for improving the security situation throughout Pakistan.
