Pakistan quizzes over a million people during anti-terror crackdown

Karachi: Pakistan's Law enforcement and intelligence agencies have reportedly questioned over a million people under the National Action Plan (NAP) to counter terror which was devised last year in December after the Peshawar school carnage.

According to the Express Tribune, experts somehow believe that arresting or questioning people is not the solution as there is an absence of any institutional reforms.

Since intelligence-based raids began on December 28, 2014, law enforcement agencies have questioned 1,073,699 people during 73,058 operations across the country.

The agencies arrested 85,213 suspects during this period with the highest (40,477) arrested in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Around 25,215 people were arrested in Sindh, 8,639 in Balochistan, 5,371 in Punjab; 2,329 in Islamabad and 755 suspects were arrested in tribal areas.
