QUETTA Levies Force claimed on Sunday to have arrested five suspects, involved in attacks and torching of trucks, carrying NATO supplies, from Wadh area of District Khuzdar. Official sources said that following the unprecedented surge in attacks and burning of NATO containers on Karachi-Quetta and Jacobabad-Quetta routes, the security was beefed up on National Highway, private terminals and hotels where NATO vehicles usually take break. They said that a Levies team headed by Naib Tehsildar Ornach carried out a raid in Wadh area of Khuzdar, some 350 KM southeast of Quetta and arrested five accused, including their ring leader. However, their names could not be ascertained immediately. The sources said that a pick-up, five motorcycles and arms were recovered from their possession, adding that they were also allegedly involved in highway robberies. Suspects are being interrogated and important disclosures are expected from them, the sources added. Commissioner Kalat Division has also announced reward for the Levies personnel. On the other hand, after resumption of NATO supplies via Torkham border, NATO tankers which were stopped in Jaffarabad and Nasirabad were also allowed to continue their journey towards Afghanistan via Quetta under strict security measures. It may be mentioned here that, though supply of fuel and other logistic support to NATO forces deployed in Afghanistan fighting Taliban was not halted via Balochistan after NATO airstrikes on a Pakistani check post at Pak-Afghan border in Fata but it was slowed down, forcing drivers to park their vehicles in different areas of Balochistan. This situation had exposed them to attacks and more than 60 NATO trucks were destroyed in different areas within a week. Following surge in attacks, some NATO containers were stopped in Naseerabad and Jaffarabad areas to avoid further attacks. However, on Sunday NATO trucks left for Afghanistan under strict security by local administration. Meanwhile, Commissioner Naseerabad Division, Naseebullah Khan Bazai and Deputy Commissioners of Naseerbad and Jaffarabad along with officials of Levies Force visited Mittri area of District Kachhi where assailants set 29 tankers on fire in a pre-dawn attack on Saturday. Talking to journalists, Naseebullah Khan Bazai said that the administration was unaware about parking of NATO tankers in a large number in Mittri area due to which this incident occurred. He said that tankers were having their own security granted them by company besides paying them millions of rupees. He said that so far they had not found any evidence of involvement of Balochistan Liberation Army or Taliban nor they had accepted responsibility for it.
