A senior police officer and three members of his family were martyred in a terrorist attack in a Quetta neighbourhood on Wednesday night.

SP Investigations Muhammad Ilyas, his wife, son, and a brother were killed when terrorists riding motorcycles ambushed their vehicle in the Nawan Killi area of Quetta, according to police.

The deadly shooting came less than a week after another senior police official was martyred in a suicide attack.

Khan | 2 years ago | Reply | Recommend the solution to Quetta issue is simple. start dividing the regions and isolating the bad regions with questionable activities and personalities and on the way, neutralize the bad elements.....otherwise waiting for them to strike will be demoralizing to state institutions and devastating for national interest.
Israr | 2 years ago | Reply | Recommend RIP. Only the very brave present themselves for work in such a dangerous environment. The provincial and federal government and security forces need to come together to free this beautiful city from the grips of terror.
