QUETTA: Chief Minister Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri on Monday said that India’s top intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) is involved in the terrorist activities in Balochistan.
According to the latest details, the attack seemed to be a suicide attack, Zehri said.
Zehri while speaking to Geo News, did not provide a death toll but said that around 40 were injured in today's blast in Quetta.
Terrorists are aiming for soft targets, said the CM Balochistan. “We will not bow down before terrorists,” he added.
Zehri vowed that wherever terrorists are, they would be brought to justice.
The CM Balochistan said that he would also summon an emergency meeting concerning the security situation in the province.
On Monday, a blast ripped through the emergency department of Quetta’s Civil Hospital, killing at least 53 and wounding 56. The explosion occurred when Balochistan Bar Association President Bilal Kasi's body was being brought to the emergency department. He was gunned down at Mano Jan Road earlier today.
This is not the first time a government official has blamed the neighbouring country's top intelligence agency in wake of terrorist attacks.
