QUETTA: As many as six Frontier Constabulary (FC) officials were injured after their vehicle came under attack near Western Bypass on Monday.
The personnel were en route to firing range of the training camp when terrorists attacked the van with a remote-controlled bomb. The injured officials have been shifted to Bolan Medical Complex in a critical condition.
They are Subedar Muhammad Shafi, Hawaldar Awalur Rehman, Naik Latif, Sepoys Saif, Raza Rehman and Qaim Khan.
According to the Bomb Disposal Squad, eight to ten Kg explosives were used in the bombing.
Security forces have cordoned off the area and started a search operation. Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri condemned the attack, adding that terrorists would not be succeeded in their nefarious designs.
Despite the National Action Plan (NAP), attacks on security forces are a routine in Balochistan as the province is in the limelight due to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
