The protesters announced that they will continue their sit-in till Prime Minister Imran Khan makes a visit to Quetta himself.
Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed called on Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad on Tuesday to give an update to the premier about his visit to Quetta.
The minister had assured the Hazaras protesting the execution of the coal miners in Balochistan’s Machh that he will share their demands with PM Khan.
They shared their demands with Rashid when he visited the protesters Monday. The interior minister said he will communicate the demands of protesters to PM Imran Khan.
“Prime Minister Imran Khan himself should visit Quetta and look into all these issues,” the leader of the Hazaras said Monday.
The terror attack on the miners has been claimed by the Islamic State.
Up to 2,500 protesters staged a sit-in, gathered with eight bodies in coffins and blocked a bypass on the outskirts of Quetta, demanding justice Monday. “We will not end our protest until the arrest of all the assassins,” Balochistan Shia Conference chief Agha Daud said.
