One of the wounded was reportedly in critical condition.

The area was cordoned off as an investigation into the blast got underway.

Initial investigations suggested that explosive material might have been used in the blast.

Home Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove condemned the blast, saying that anti-state elements are trying to destablise the law and order situation.

The provincial minister directed that the wounded should be given best medical facilities and the law enforcement agencies should also beef up security arrangements across the province.

Chief Minister Balochistan Jam Kamal condemned the blast which took place near the Frontier Corps vehicle, saying that miscreants once again want to destroy the peace of the province.

The CM Balochistan said that efforts to ensure longlasting peace will be taken.

Balochistan’s provincial capital in the recent past witnessed a series of blasts targeting police vehicles. In November, at least one person died in an explosion at the city's Double Road. Officials said that 10 others were injured in the same blast.

On Sept 26, at least three policemen were injured in a blast in Eastern Bypass area of Quetta.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
