The recent encounter took place within the jurisdiction of Gadap Town police station which depicts a terrible outlook of police department.

It is pertinent to mention here that not a single bullet hit the police mobile and seen at the crime scene, where the encounter reportedly took place.
If the deceased persons were of militant background, then why they did not retaliate, said Muhammad Ali, an activist of an outlawed organisation. He explained that a militant means a trained fighter and how the police tackled them without receiving even a single injury.
Ali further explained that training and expertise of police personnel are not enough to protect them without loss. He pointed out five innocents, who were killed by the police as suspected militants, were supposed enough to fight with dozens of police personnel.
He cited the real encounter that took place in the same town couple of months ago. In that police action, the Anti Violence and Crime Cell faced heavy loss and not a single militant was captured.
