A bomb blast or something
Independence has been demanded in Balochistan since time immemorial. Insurgent groups have attacked Pakistani military posts here, killing scores of soldiers. Rangers and special battalions have also been deployed here in recent times. Despite this, the violence has not abated.
The blast completely destroyed seven cars. It was a bomb blast that some still do not understand. The Balochistan government confirmed the blast and put the death toll at four. The government said in a statement that it was “trying to find out if there was a terrorist attack.” Pakistan’s Home Minister Sheikh Rashid also confirmed the incident. Said- We will try to get to the bottom of the matter. The whole country is united to fight terrorism.
