Professor gunned down in Quetta

Afp April 27, 2010

QUETTA: Gunmen on Tuesday shot dead a woman university professor in Quetta, where targeted killings blamed on tribal insurgents, sectarian groups and militants are increasing, police said.

Nazima Talib, 48, had just stepped into a rickshaw at the gate of Balochistan University in Quetta city when gunmen riding a motorbike sprayed her with bullets, senior police officer Tariq Manzoor said.

"She received multiple bullet wounds and died before she could be taken to hospital," Manzoor told AFP. "It was a targeted killing," he said.

Talib came from Punjab that regional insurgents in Balochistan accuse of siphoning off their resources and denying them independence, police said. She was a senior teacher in the mass communications department.


farhan | 13 years ago | Reply Whoever is behind the professor's murder must bring to book. Whatever we talk and share here, we can not forget that Balochistan is burning because of the vested interests of undemocratic rulers who have ruled Pakistan. On the other hand, present government is so much engrossed in its matters that it cannot find time to look at the grave issues of burning Baluchistan. Time is running out. Bring real democracy in Pakistan and save Baluchistan.
