QUETTA: Six labourers working on network installation for a private telecommunication company were shot dead by unidentified armed men in Kharan district, on Thursday night.
According to levies forces, the labourers, who belonged to Punjab, were working without any kind of security and did not have a no objection certificate (NOC) either. The Frontier Corps (FC), levies forces and administration reached the site of the incident and shifted the bodies to Civil Hospital.
Earlier this year, armed men sprayed bullets on two Balochistan Constabulary (BC)’s RRG personnel on Sariab flyover killing one injuring other. Muhammad Alam and Shah Nazar were on-way to their duties when armed men opened firing on them at Sariab flyover and whisked-away.
“As result of firing one BC’s Rapid Response Group personnel Muhammad Alam was killed on the spot and Nazar Shah sustained injuries,” police said. Rescue workers and heavy Contingent of Law Enforcement Agencies reached the spot and shifted the body and injured to Civil Hospital for autopsy
