Four killed in Quetta after gunmen open fire on vehicle

Four killed in Quetta after gunmen open fire on vehicle”

In 2013, three separate bombings killed over 200 people in Hazara neighbourhoods, raising global awareness of the plight of the community.

The injured were shifted to civil hospital, where the child succumbed to his wounds.

The ongoing violence in the province has fuelled concern about security for projects in the $57-billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor, a transport and energy link planned to run from western China to Pakistan's southern deep-water port of Gwadar.

Naseem Khan, a police official from Kuchlak Police Station, said the Hazara community members were attacked at Jalogir Petrol Pump, Kuchlak, a town approximately 25km away from Balochistan capital city.

The assailants successfully managed to flee. Hunt was underway to arrest the attackers.

So far, no group has claimed the attack. He also extended condolences to the victim families.

"The preliminary investigation shows that it was sectarian-based targeted killings as the family belongs to the Hazara community and was coming from Afghanistan", said Amjad Ali Khan, a police commissioner from Quetta.

In another attack a couple of years ago, militants stopped a local bus near Quetta, forced only the Hazara commuters off the bus, lined them up and shot them.

In October previous year, gunmen opened fire on a bus carrying Hazara men and women in Quetta.
