The Governor said that some arrests have been made in connection with the killing of the Saudi diplomat and that investigation is in progress keeping in view different angles.

He was of the view that the information thus obtained would be shared with the diplomats.

Dr. Ebad said that it was being considered to have a diplomatic enclave on the pattern of one in Islamabad, for ensuring comprehensive security of the diplomats.

He also asked the diplomats that if they have any apprehensions regarding security they should immediately inform the law enforcement agencies’ official responsible for security.

“Diplomats are our guests and their protection is our priority”, he remarked adding that they were not only envoys but they also bring investment and play a role in portraying our image abroad.
