The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

LA­HORE: Pun­jab gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tive Zaeem Qadri on Mon­day ad­mit­ted that it was a fail­ure of the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment that law en­forc­ing in­sti­tu­tions were un­able to pro­vide ef­fec­tive se­cu­rity to the parks of the pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal. While ad­dress­ing the me­dia, Qadri stated that the se­cu­rity in­sti­tu­tions did achieve sig­nif­i­cant break­throughs in the bat­tle against ter­ror­ism how­ever he agreed that the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment failed to pro­vide se­cu­rity to the re­cre­ational park that was tar­geted by the ter­ror­ists on Sun­day. Qadri said that in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­gard­ing the tragic in­ci­dent that oc­curred in La­hore is un­der­way and that those re­spon­si­ble for the at­tack will not be able to es­cape the law. A sui­cide blast in the Gul­shan Iqbal Park in La­hore on Sun­day claimed the lives of al­most 70 peo­ple, mostly women and chil­dren, and left over 300 as in­jured.
