The South Asian country has been struck by a wave of terrorist attacks in recent weeks, killing at least 130 people across the country and leaving hundreds wounded.
It was unclear whether the new crackdown would target groups like the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba, which are aligned against rival India.
Jamaat-ur-Ahrar, a faction of the Pakistani Taliban, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Pakistani police allege that honour killing victim, Qandeen Baloch’s parents were bribed to change their testimony after they claimed only one son was involved.
In this rare stand by Pakistani authorities, the murder of Baloch, a social media celebrity, will evade a common legal escape that prevents honour killing cases from going to trial.
While Pakistan’s attention has been focused on the Taliban and al-Qaeda threat in the remote northwest, militants and criminals have quietly expanded their influence in the country’s heartland of Punjab.
