The reason for revealing is to inform that new youth, OGW, are involved in it also and police is alert,” he said as per GNS, adding, “We are tracking it. When militant comes, people know and runaway as they know what the militant is up to but in case of OGW they don’t know what is about to happen, and as such it remains our top priority.”
