ISLAMABAD: Awami National Party (ANP) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have called for investigation into an military operation in the North Waziristan Agency (NWA). Speaking in the Senate on Friday, ANP leader Afrasiab Khattak said that innocent people including women and children were being killed in Miranshah and Mirali areas of NWA, adding that as to why those ‘fond of dharna (sit-in)’ were silent over the killings.

He called upon President Mamnoon Hussain to use his constitutional powers to improve situation in the tribal areas. The PPP stalwart Raza Rabbani also demanded of the President to play constitutional role in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).
