Pakistan Today (Karachi) - - NEWS -

QUETTA: At least eight se­cu­rity per­son­nel were in­jured in Balochis­tan’s Pan­j­goor dis­trict when a mil­i­tary con­voy was am­bushed, se­cu­rity of­fi­cials said.

“The se­cu­rity per­son­nel were mov­ing through the dis­trict’s moun­tain­ous Gichak area to con­duct a raid against mis­cre­ants when they were fired upon,” said a se­cu­rity of­fi­cial.

The in­jured se­cu­rity per­son­nel were rushed to a nearby hos­pi­tal for med­i­cal treat­ment.

Ex­tra forces were called to the area af­ter the am­bush and started a search op­er­a­tion. No ar­rests were re­ported till the fil­ing of this re­port. There was no claim of re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack. Balochis­tan Chief Min­is­ter Nawab Sanaullah Zehri strongly con­demned the at­tack.
