QUETTA - Senator Samina Mumtaz Zehri on Monday expressed deep sorrow and grief over the abduction and martyrdom of Lt. Col. Laeeq Ahmed and his companion in Ziarat.

In a statement, she said the incident of abduction and martyrdom of Lt. Col. Laeeq and his cousin by terrorists was a very sad act and the elements involved in this heinous act would be brought to justice as soon as possible.

The country and the nation are proud of brave sons like Laeeq Mirza, she added.

She said in this way, negative tactics and cowardly actions could not hamper the determination and morale of the Pakistan Army and the nation against terrorism.  Terrorist organizations are sponsored by India for terrorism in Balochistan, which was admitted by Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav, she said.

She said Pakistan Army was doing a great job by defending the borders of the country.  She said that the entire Pakistani nation is united and stand on the national security and survival and no power in the world can do any harm to the united Pakistani nation.
