Fake court orders being used to free high-value prisoners

The Balochistan government has unearthed a conspiracy to free several high-value prisoners from provincial jails on the basis of fake court orders.
So far, 11 such prisoners have been released from the Central Prison in Khuzdar. Four of these prisoners belonged to North Waziristan and seven were from Balochistan.
A private TV channel reported that a three-member committee, headed by the additional home secretary, is probing into the entire matter. After initial investigations, the government has suspended the superintendent and assistant superintendent of Khuzdar Jail. The authorities have also arrested one person who was carrying fake release orders for some prisoners.
Elsewhere in Kalat, an explosion killed one person and damaged three houses on Thursday. Police said the explosives were stored in a house located in the Sourab area. The building caved in after the blast. A man present in the house was killed, while two neighbouring houses were partially damaged. The police registered a case and started investigations.
