While the Pakistan Army led military operation titled Zerb-e-Azb has yielded tremendous results in rooting out terrorist from the Pakistani tribal belt in particular and rest of the country in particular and more than 90 per cent areas in North and South Waziristan agencies as well as Khyber Agency bordering provincial metropolis have been cleared of the terrorists, the National Action Plan (NAP) coupled with the best policing in the province has also yielded positive results at least in the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province where the terror attacks have reduced considerably and crimes ratio has come down to great extent.
The two-year NAP implementation report reveals that the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa has witnessed 68 percent reduction in terror attacks since the Army Public School (APS) attack on December 16, 2014 where in around 150 people, mostly school children were brutally martyred by the heartless terrorists. The incident had sent a wave of harassment , shock and resentment among the dwellers of the KP in particular and the country in general.
According to the report the law enforcement agencies have carried out over 25,000 operations under NAP in the province during these two years. During these operations more than 100,000 suspects were taken into custody. Ten criminals were executed for involvement in terrorism, 45 terrorists were sentenced to prison while 798 terrorists were arrested by the Counter-Terrorism Department, the report further stated.
The report further states that 1,471 kg of explosive material and 12 suicide jackets were seized in operations during the period. Action was taken against 2,178 fake ID card makers and cases were filed against 950 suspects for fake ID verification.
Additionally, 17,972 foreigners residing illegally in Pakistan were deported, the report said.
It may be recalled that owing to the best policing in the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province the crimes rates in the province have already dropped considerably and revolutionary reforms introduced in the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa Police have made the KP Police a model force of the country, a fact admitted by everybody and today the KP province stands on top among the five provinces of Pakistan with regard to best Police system and low crime rate.
