Back on July 20, at least four people were injured in the border town of Chaman after an improvised explosive device (IED) planted in a motorcycle exploded as a law-enforcement vehicle passed by.

Heavy gunfire was reported from Mall Road, where the incident took place, following the explosion, and a large contingent of security personnel cordoned off the area. The injured were transferred immediately to Civil Hospital for medical assistance.

Vehicles parked near the site of attack were damaged with windscreens shattered as a result of the impact. The shops situated near the main road caught fire as the explosion jolted the city.
