QUETTA: At least three policemen were killed and four others injured in a remote-controlled blast targetting a police mobile in Quetta’s Buleli area on Friday.

After the blast, ambulances reached the area and shifted the wounded to a nearby hospital. Police and Frontier Corps personnel cordoned off the area soon after the blast.

On Monday, a blast targeting a police van in Quetta wounded nine people, including three policemen. According to reports, the blast took place after explosives were planted on a motorcycle on Quetta’s Spinny Road.

Last week, at least one person was killed in an explosion at the city’s Double Road which had left 10 people wounded.
