Two persons including DIG Hamid Shakeel martyred Quetta blast

Senior police official killed in targeted Quetta attack

Hamid Shakeel was appointed as the DIG motor transport and telecommunication after serving as a superintendent of police, senior superintendent and additional inspector general.

The anti-state Pakistani Taliban claimed credit for plotting Thursday's deadly attack in Quetta, capital of Baluchistan province. TV footage showed the badly damaged vehicle of DIG while rescuers and volunteers transporting the dead and injured to hospitals. The injured have been shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH), Quetta for immediate treatment. A search operation has also been launched in the area to trace the suspects.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Zahri strongly condemned the attack and summoned report as early as possible.

At least six police commandos and a civilian were killed last month when an explosives-laden vehicle rammed into a security force's convoy on the Quetta-Sibi Highway. Prolonged instability and violence in Balochistan southwestern province has become a headache for Pakistani authorities due to huge Chinese investment in the strategic China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project in the region.

Nine people, including police officers, were also wounded in the attack that targeted Hamid Shakil, who had played a key role in arresting militants and members of small separatist groups in recent years, said police officer Naseeb Ullah.

In June this year, 14 people, including seven policemen, were killed and 21 others were injured in a suicide vehicle bombing on Gulistan Road in Balochistan.
