    Karachi: On December 6, Consul General Grace Shelton officially handed over six armored personnel vehicles (APVs) worth 150 million rupee ($1.5 million USD) to the Balochistan police officials at an event in Karachi. The vehicles were built by the American company Lenco and were designed specifically for the rough terrain of Balochistan and easy maintenance locally.

    In addition to the APVs, the United States recently donated 4,000 bullet resistant vests, mine and explosives detectors, bomb suits, and bomb blankets. The total donation was in excess of $7 million USD.

    Speaking at the event the Consul General said, “The recent targeted killings of Balochistan police officers shows just how dangerous policing can be in Balochistan and how we cannot rest in determining ways to keep law enforcement officers safe. The United States Government hopes these vehicles and the other protective equipment can help protect these brave officers while they continue to fight crime and terrorism.”

    The United States Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs works in more than 90 countries to help countries combat crime and corruption, counter drug-related offences, improve police institutions, and promote laws and court systems that are fair and accountable.

    These days the numbers have become a joke. Why do we even want these small number of vehicles from US. This number can be arranged from HIT.
