DPO Qilla Abdullah martyred in Chaman blast
A senior police official was martyred and at least 10 other people, including two police officials, were injured in a blast near Boghra Road in Balochistan’s Chaman area on Monday morning.
Although initial reports suggested the blast was caused by an Improvised Explosive Device, police sources later said it was a suicide attack targeting a vehicle carrying the police officials.
Balochistan Government Spokesperson Anwarul Haq Kakar said District Police Officer Killa Abdullah Sajid Mohmand, who was critically wounded in the blast, succumbed to his injuries. Two other police officials providing security to the DPO were also seriously injured and have been transported to Quetta for medical treatment.
An emergency has been declared in hospitals and law enforcement and rescue officials have been dispatched to the site of the incident.
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar and Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti condemned the attack. Nisar sought a report on the incident.
Chaman is considered a sensitive town in Balochistan as it shares a border with Afghanistan’s volatile Kandahar province.
