QUETTA: A police officer was shot dead outside his residence in Killi Kamalo, Quetta by unknown assailants on Friday.
According to a local police officer, police sub-inspector Sayed Jamal Shah was targeted by assailants riding a motorbike. He received multiple bullets and died on the spot.
A heavy contingent of police reached the spot and cordoned off the area. The police officer’s body was taken to the Bolan Medical College (BMC) Teaching Hospital for autopsy.
“It is a targeted attack. Jamal Shah is the same officer who earlier escaped a remote controlled explosion on Qambarani road on Thursday that killed one policeman and injured three others,” a senior police officer said.
Earlier this week, senior police officer Shahnawaz Khan was gunned down near his residence.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
