Pakistan: 141 Nato containers/tankers looted torched, says Balochistan home ministry

31st Aug 2013

QUETTA, (The News): Balochistan home ministry said that a total of 141 Nato containers and tankers were looted, torched, seven persons were killed and more than a dozen persons wounded, while unofficial sources claimed that the number of incidents of looting Nato containers and tankers are much higher than the officially released data, Geo News reported.


Sources said that Nato containers and tankers have been carrying supplies for Nato forces in Afghanistan from Karachi port by road to Chaman border in Balochistan for about a decade, but since 2006 onward the incidents of looting and burning of containers and tankers not only started but continued rising in different parts of Balochistan mostly in Khuzdar, Mastung, outskirts of Quetta, Kuchlak, Qila Abdullah, Pishin and adjoining areas. No wonder, Nato looted goods from the containers are seen openly sold in the markets of the cities in the province.


It may be recalled that the former chief minister, Aslam Raisani had admitted in the provincial assembly July 2012 session that he was unable to provide security to the Nato forces transports due to lack of resources.,-says-Balochistan-home-ministry
