How did the rocket launcher reach the village?

According to the news, Sindh Chief Minister Justice Maqbool Bakar has sought a report on the matter from the provincial Inspector General. He said that the report should tell how a rocket launcher reached Jangi Subjwai Goth village of Kandhkot tehsil of Kashmore district of the province.
