Imran Khan expresses solidarity with Mastung victims' families
QUETTA - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan reached Quetta on Sunday to express solidarity with the families of Mastung victims as the country observes a day of national mourning.

Imran is accompanied by party spokesperson Naeemul Haque and Awon Chaudhry.

After reaching Quetta, Imran visited the CMH to inquire into the health of those injured in the incident.

The PTI chief visited the Raisani's family at their home to offer condolences.

The PTI chief while talking to media termed the Mastung bombing a conspiracy to delay the elections.

Imran Khan said, "Pakistan's internal and external enemies are behind the Mastung attack,".

A total of 131 people were killed after a suicide bomber struck Nawaz Siraj Raisani's election meeting in Darenghar area of Mastung.

Terming Raisani an asset to his party and a diehard patriot, Imran said he realised the true scale of the Mastung tragedy after meeting the victims' families.

Imran criticised the lack of implementation of the National Action Plan for the continuation of terrorism in the country after 2014.

"We will not postpone elections since that is what the enemies want," he stated further.

Raisani, the brother of former Balochistan chief minister Nawaz Aslam Raisani, was a Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) candidate from PB-35 constituency.

Investigations are underway into the attack, with an FIR registered on terrorism charges and Mastung Tehsildar Buland Khan assigned as the investigating officer.
