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.

Holy Cow ... These Idiots have grown really brave! It would be an outrage if the security agencies do not get Hard on these terrorists because its not about Hundreds of Hazaras (Which they don't care about anyway) being Killed. These are the people from the Police Force. Wake Up before you make the Headlines!
