SUKKUR (Web Desk) – Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah said Director General Rangers has taken him into confidence regarding the arrest of Uzair Jan Baloch on Saturday.

Speaking to media, he said he was informed by Major General Bilal Akbar that the suspect was facing charges of murder, robbery and other crimes, SAMAA reported.

“People say he was taken into custody previously, but his arrest has been made public today,” he said, adding that Pakistan People’s Party never protected terrorists nor would it do so in the future.

“Now Uzair Baloch will be interrogated, and I hope investigation would be conducted in transparent manner,” the chief minister said.

Qaim Ali Shah, whose government has recently been at loggerheads with the central government over Rangers’ policing powers, said he has been of the view that provincial government should be taken into confidence prior to arrest of any politician.
