Unidentified men opened fire on armoured vehicle, resulting in martyrdom of one police constable, while another was injured.

The firing incident took place in Quetta's Hazar Ganji area. According to police sources, unidentified assailants opened fire at a police vehicle that was guarding fruit sellers belonging to the Hazara community.

The police described it as a targeted attack.

According to sources, the area was cordoned off by police and Frontier Corps personnel. The injured policeman has been shifted to the Balochistan Medical Complex where he is being treated. 

No one has claimed responsibility of the attack.

Minister Home & Tribal Affairs, Prisons and PDMA of Balochistan Sarfraz Bugti said, "The culprits will be arrested and punished for the attack. Sacrifices of our forces will not be forgotten."   

It can often be seen that attacks on police personnel have become a frequent occurrence in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan.
