"The killings that are taking place here, innocent people are being imprisoned, and even party leaders are being put into jails, Bar Association people are being put behind bars, but this will not alter the thinking of the people," Shah said.

She urged security forces to curb acts of violence.

"This is my appeal to everyone, especially our police, that they should stop these killings, stop these acts of violence," Shah added.
