QUETTA: A Frontier Corps (FC) soldier was killed and two others were wounded after their vehicle was attacked with a rocket-propelled grenade in Tump area of Kech district, Balochistan on Sunday.

“A group of armed men fired a rocket propelled grenade at an FC vehicle in Tump area which was followed by intense firing; as a result of the firing, a FC subehdar Shireenul Islam was killed and two personnel sustained injuries,” Balochistan FC spokesperson Khan Wasay said.

FC personnel reached the site of the incident and mounted a search operation and the injured were shifted to a hospital.
