Intelligence official among three killed in Balochistan
QUETTA: Unidentified gunmen killed two factory workers and an intelligence official in two separate incidents in Balochistan, police said on Monday. The factory workers were killed and three others were injured when gunmen ambushed a police van on the RCD Highway in Hub, but the bullets hit a passenger van instead, police sources told Daily Times. The attackers fled despite police firing. Similar attacks have occurred in the area in the past.
Separately, unidentified assailants shot dead an intelligence official late on Sunday, also in Hub, a town with a history of bombings and shootings blamed on tribal rebels. “A junior official of military intelligence was shot dead by unknown gunmen late Sunday,” said police official Faizullah Korejo. Civil and military authorities have launched investigations into the incident, he added.
