The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

At least two labour­ers were killed when uniden­ti­fied armed opened opened fire at them on Quetta's Sariab road on Thurs­day.

Po­lice sources said mo­tor­cy­cle-rid­ing armed men opened fire at the labour­ers on Sariab road, crit­i­cally in­jur­ing them. The as­sailants fled from the scene af­ter the at­tack. The vic­tims suc­cumbed to their wounds while res­cue teams were shift­ing them to a nearby hos­pi­tal. Po­lice stated that both vic­tims had re­ceived mul­ti­ple bullet in­juries. The bod­ies were dhifted to Civil Hos­pi­tal Quetta for post-mortem.

Po­lice and per­son­nel of fron­tier corps reached the spot ar­rived at the at­tack site and cor­doned off the area as a probe into the in­ci­dent went un­der­way. No im­me­di­ate claim of re­spon­si­bil­ity was made fol­low­ing the at­tacks. Po­lice said the in­ci­dent seems to be an act of tar­geted killing. In­ci­dents of tar­geted vi­o­lence fre­quently take place in the restive Balochis­tan province.
