Karachi, Apr 29 (ANI): Balochistan Governor Nawab Zulfiqar Ali Magsi today said that the government would constitute a new inquiry tribunal into the Turbat killings which would be acceptable to Baloch nationalist parties, and underscored the need for expeditiously resolving the problems underlying the unrest in the province.

Talking to journalists, Magsi said the situation could worsen if the issues were not promptly and amicably resolved.

The Balochistan Governor said that the government was making efforts for redressing the grievances of Baloch nationalist parties relating to the province, The Dawn reports.

He said recommendations made in the past regarding Balochistan’s problems did not receive due attention.

To a question he said that if the government asked for his recommendations he would present his suggestions.

Answering another question about the recent mysterious killing of three Baloch nationalist leaders, he said that the government would constitute an inquiry tribunal acceptable to Baloch nationalist parties.

He said the Baloch parties did not have confidence in the tribunal already formed for the purpose in the province.
