“We draw the attention of the Prime Minister, Home Minister and security agencies to secure the minimum human rights as the incident challenges the right of anyone to travel safely,” read the statement, "FNCN expresses deep sorrow for the well planned attacked towards Christian Community one after another and demand fair and free investigation of this incident to government."
