Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has said that the probe into Dasu bus incident is in its final stages and will be completed soon.

The federal minister said on Saturday that he has directed security agencies to further improve the security of Chinese nationals.

Briefing the media in Islamabad, Interior Minister Rashid said that 15 Chinese officials have arrived in Pakistan for the investigation and his counterpart has also spoken to him about the Dasu accident.

He said the accident took place on the Karakoram Highway, adding that the injured are being treated at the Pakistan Army Hospital.

“It is our duty to protect the lives of the Chinese people. The security of their people will be ensured,” Rashid said, adding that the Chinese Ministry of Interior has been taken on board.

He said that the prime minister has asked him and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to go to China.

Rashid stressed that Pak-China friendship is eternal and the accident does not impact this friendship. The enemies of CPEC and Pakistan and China’s friendship will not be forgiven, he concluded.

He said the interior ministry is keeping eye on anti-state elements and added that some suspects have been arrested from Lahore who were planning sabotage in Quetta.

He said India leave no stone unturned to create unrest in Pakistan and support terrorists, while Pakistan has always advocated for peace.

The minister said Pakistan would never allow its soil to create unrest in any neighbouring country.
