    Although Chitral Police has arrested the prime accused after fourteen months, still a good step but not the best. The arrest has been made after lodging of an FIR and according to report after DPO’s order. The police has claim to arrest one prime accused, here is a question arise what about the others who were with him. What is the role of others. Why police has not arrested and introgated the them. Those people who were present there on the fatal day must be included in the introgation so all the culprits must be brought to the book. Chitral police must persue these type of criminal cases with great efficiency because Chitral has track record of being most peaceful and if police showed a lackluster approach in handling the criminals, it will udnermine peaceful of Chitral society that is our hall-mark. The district police officer Asif Iqbal sab must keep this in mind.

    Such a pathetic and callous police and un-professionalism. the investigating officer of the case and his head all should be punished for lack of interest and vested interest. in chitral, i have never seen any na-maloom afrad committing crime and running away like we have seen i big cities bcoz here people know each other and also know if one has any enmity with someone. here in this case, the young man set out with his two friends on a drive in his vehicle and disappeared. so the two friends should have been held for interrogation. But the police did not bother even to touch them to reach the bottom of the heinous crime. the relatives might have approached some ministers or the dpo in such a long time to order the police to catch the culprits. And the police showed so quickness to arrest them. it meant that the local police were well in the know about the killers and protecting them. Had the dpo not issued instructions, what would have been the fate of the case.

    Does the DPO have to issue special instructions to arrest killers? Does it mean if DPO does not issue special instructions police does not move to arrest offenders? What is this?. Can some one explain please.

    This is too bad. Such people should be made an example for killing an innocent young man. Also people of Kuragh specially the educated people should come forward to positively engage with youth and motivate them. Things are bad in every village but Kuragh is worse.

    being muslim and particularly as chitrali we sould avoid ourself kind of brutal activities and hostile mannre.god forbid

    We also appeal DPO sb to issue similar direction to Mulkhow Police to constitute a special team to probe the case of a young boy who is also missing from the last year. Due to poverty, ignorance and and absence of grown up male, the family is not in a position to struggle for the case.
