The opposition members of the Balochistan Assembly who turned themselves in yesterday have spent their night in the compound of the police station as police have not detained them yet, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Sources informed 24News TV channel on Tuesday that the parleys that continued till late at night between the opposition lawmakers and Balochistan Home Minister Ziaullah Langov failed.

The opposition members put their beds in the compound of the police station for their night kip over there. They persisted that they would spend their night in the police station. Later, they had a dinner in the compound. 

The Balochistan home department tried to bring the opposition parliamentarians around. But Home Minister Langov’s dialogue with them remained fruitless.

Mr Langov said that the provincial government wanted that all issues should be sorted on the floor of the assembly. He requested the opposition legislators to go to their houses.

But the opposition members were of the view that since the government lodged an FIR against them, now the police should put them behind the bars and there was no other way round.
