Attack on police officials: 25 suspects arrested in Quetta


QUETTA: Security forces on Saturday launched a search operation in various parts of the provincial capital and arrested 25 suspects in the aftermath of targeted attacks on police officials.

“25 suspects were arrested from various parts of Quetta,” said a police official.

Raids were conducted by security forces in Kasi road, Balochi street and other areas of the provincial capital.

All suspects were being interrogated by security forces in connection with the recent attacks on police officials.

Four policemen were killed during past week in two separate incidents of targeted killings in Multani Mohallaand Sariab road areas of Quetta.

In both incidents, the assailants managed to escape unhindered from the scene of the attack. No group or individual has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Balochistan has been experiencing incident violence and targeted killings since more than a decade. The largest province of the country by area, is home to a low-level insurgency by ethnic Baloch separatists. Al Qaeda-linked militants also operate in the region.
