As part of political reconciliation in Balochistan, 434 militants surrendered to the authorities on Friday evening.

The militants belonged to various banned organisations, including Baloch Republican Army (BRA), Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) and other groups. The militants were allegedly involved in attacks on government installations in Quetta, Dera Bugti, Sui and other parts of the province.

“Innocent people have been used and elements instigating them were living abroad,” said Chief Minister Balochistan Nawab Sanaullah Zehri.

“Innocent people were martyred at the behest of elements who are the slaves of RAW and no compromise would be made over the writ of the government,” added the chief minister.

Commander Southern Command Lieutenant General Amir Riaz on the occasion said that Pakistan cannot be weakened.

“Anyone laying down their arms would be welcomed,” added Riaz.

“We were deceived,” said Sher Mohammad, a key commander of the proscribed BLA, while Dur Khan Baloch, another key commander, said they will “no longer fight for the Indians”.

A senior provincial official said so far over 1500 militants have surrendered.

“More Ferraris would surrender before the authorities in the days to come, said Balochistan government spokesperson Anwarul Haq Kakar.

The surrender ceremony was attended by senior military and civilians leaders.

The largest province of the country by area, is home to a low-level insurgency by ethnic Baloch separatists. Al Qaeda-linked militants also operate in the region.

The province shares borders with Afghanistan and Iran.

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan army released on Wednesday a video of a confessional statement made by a top Tehreeke-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militant Ehsanullah Ehsan, who was earlier the spokesperson of its lethal faction Jamaatul-Ahrar. The video showed Ehsan confessing that he participated in anti-Pakistan activities from sanctuaries in Afghanistan and surrendered "voluntarily" to Pakistani security forces.

The militant alleged that Indian intelligence agencies are working with their Afghan equivalents in carrying out terror attacks against Pakistan. Ehsan, who used to regularly liaise with Pakistani journalists, was missing for past few months, until surfacing in the video. Army spokesman, Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, claimed Ehsan had surrendered to security forces and was now in their custody.

After the operation in North Waziristan, Ehsan said, Taliban jihadis fled to Afghanistan. "There, we established and developed contacts with India and its spy agency RAW ," he claimed. "TTP got their (Indian) support, their funding and took money for every terrorist activity in Pakistan. They pushed TTP soldiers on the frontlines to fight against Pakistan army and went into hiding themselves," he said. "These (terrorist) organisations have established committees in Afghanistan through which they communicate and coordinate with RAW . Indians had given them special visas to help them move around in Afghanistan with ease," he said.
