QUETTA: Superintendent of Police Crime Investigation Department (CID) Shahnawaz Khan succumbed to bullet wounds sustained in a targeted attack by unidentified men on Tuesday in the Satellite Town area of Quetta, Express News reported.

According to police officials, Khan was strolling near his house when unidentified men on two motorcycles opened fire on him, killing him instantly.

Previous reports stated that he was wounded severely and was shifted to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The police and Frontier Corps (FC) surrounded the area and have begun a search for the assailants.

“He traced important cases and had received multiple threats from criminals in this regard,” said a police source.

The police have constituted teams for conducting investigations.

Recently, a convoy of the Frontier Corps (FC) was targeted in a blast on Saryab Road in Quetta, killing two people and injuring 16 others.

Members of the Hazara community, United Nations (UN) workers and security personnel have also been targeted and killed in different incidents in Balochistan where the security situation is yet to be brought under control.

Many citizens abducted from different areas of the province also remain missing.

    @True Muslim Paki:
    Police gets criticized because they’ve always been involved in every kind of corruption with the government. We feel sorry for the death of this police officer but those innocent people who’re losing their lives in target killings are also human beings and the killers just manage to escape (police?). Now police at least should do something to save themselves if not innocent people. If police department were sincere enough to perform their responsibilities, we wouldn’t be facing so much terrorism and violence.
