QUETTA: Ad­di­tional In­spec­tor Gen­eral (AIG) Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Hamid Sha­keel Dur­rani and two other po­lice­men were mar­tyred in a sui­cide at­tack near Chaman Hous­ing Scheme on Air­port Road of the pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal city Quetta, re­ported on Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, se­nior po­lice of­fi­cial Hamid Sha­keel was the ap­par­ent tar­get of the at­tack, who was leav­ing his res­i­dence and pass­ing through an un­der con­struc­tion build­ing at the time of the at­tack.

As­sis­tance Su­bIn­spec­tor (ASI) Ramzan and driver Jalil Ahmed were among the dead while four po­lice­men were also in­jured. How­ever, their iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the in­jured could not be as­cer­tained im­me­di­ately.

All the in­jured were shifted to Civil Hos­pi­tal Quetta for med­i­cal at­ten­dance.

The se­cu­rity forces cor­doned off the area and launched a search op­er­a­tion im­me­di­ately after the at­tack.

Chief Min­is­ter of Balochis­tan Sanaullah Zehri has strongly con­demned the at­tack and sum­moned re­port as early as pos­si­ble. He also ex­pressed con­do­lence to the be­reaved fam­i­lies.
