Pakistan Army asks public to report suspicious activity

Islamabad, Feb 26 (IANS) The Pakistan Army on Sunday called upon the general public to report “suspicious” militant activity “regarding terrorists” on helplines which were set up in December 2014 following the Army Public School attack.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) encouraged citizens of Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan to use the 1135 helpline to report any unusual activity, whereas the citizens of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa can call 1125, Dawn news reported.

These numbers can be dialled directly from mobile phones or landline numbers.

The Pakistan Rangers released contact information for residents of Punjab as the paramilitary force was deployed across the province for an ongoing military operation.

Security forces have re-invigorated nationwide intelligence operations as Pakistan faces a fresh resurgence in terror attacks, Dawn news said.

At least 88 people were killed and hundreds were injured when a bomb ripped through the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan in Sindh this month.
