QUETTA: A group of armed men disguised in security forces’ uniform attacked the international radar in the coastal town of Pasni, Gwadar district on Saturday evening killing one Balochistan Constabulary official and injuring another.
At least 12 armed men attacked the Constabulary personnel guarding the radar at 6:30 pm with small arms and rockets. After pinning the guards down with heavy fire, they managed to take hostage one guard and snatched weapons from others.
“There were several BC [Baloch Constabulary] personnel guarding the radar set up on the mountain top. Armed men locked BC personnel inside the room after shooting,” a senior official of the Home Department said.
