Church workers have criticized local security forces for the killing of foreigners in the restive vicariate, where five Chechen nationals suspected of terrorist activities were killed earlier this year.

“We condemn the inhuman killing of Chechens. The incident requires transparent investigation. The worsening condition of law and order has already alienated local residents from the government,” said a local priest who asked not to be named.

In May, members of the paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) and Quetta police killed the five Chechens, who were suspected of being terrorists.

In its investigative report, the judicial tribunal slammed security officers “for resorting to massacre” and showing incompetence and a lack of planning in handling the investigation.

“Due to the callous stupidity of the police and FC personnel, the entire terrorist network remains shrouded in mystery,” the report stated.

Fahim Javed, a local Caritas worker, said that expressing one’s opinion could be a death sentence.

“Continual attacks obstruct our daily lives and destroy our education system. We have been living in a state of emergency for decades,” he said.
