Quetta: It has been reported that a suicide attacker blew himself outside an imambargah in the area of Bolan Goth Chalghari, that claimed the lives of five people and injured several.
There has been some difficulty faced by the rescue workers in shifting the injured and dead bodies to the hospital. Since there is only one basic health unit in that area, there is a lack of medical resources including a proper qualified doctor. The injured will be taken to a local hospital in Sibi.
The Home Minister of Balochistan Mir Sarfaraz Bugti stated, “Ten people have been killed in the tragic incident”.
However, there has no official statement from the hospital sources yet.
The blast was targeted inside interior Balochistan, where dozen were injured instantly. The Security personnels and forces have sealed the area for the time being. At the moment, there has been a lot of security and police forces patrolling the area.
Reports have suggested that the blast took place when a suicide bomber blew himself up in Goth Chalghari area of Tehsil Bhag in Bolan district. The residents of the area heard the blast and saw the nearby windows shattering into tiny glass pieces.
A similar incident happened earlier this week when a local bus was targeted with a bomb that took the lives of 10 people, two of which were children. The attack happened on Sariab road, and twenty two people were injured.
The Chief Minister of Balochistan, Abdul Malik Baloch condemned the blast, “I am personally monitoring the situation.”
