QUETTA: The Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) on Thursday staged a demonstration outside the Balochistan Assembly building against the targeted killing of three people belonging to their community in Quetta. Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Inspector Vilayat Hussain, TV actor Abid Nazish and Mohammad Anwar were shot dead by unknown assailants on Wednesday night in Quetta, in what appeared to be an incident of sectarian killing. However, no outfit had claimed responsibility for the killings. Protestors marched through various roads and held a demonstration on the Zarghoon Road. They raised slogans against the government and the chief minister for their failure to overcome the growing incidents of target killing and kidnapping for ransom in Quetta.
