Three people — including a policeman — were killed when Saudi funded ASWJ terrorists opened fire on them in Quetta's Joint road area on Monday morning, police sources said.

The casualties were shifted to Civil Hospital for a postmortem examination.

"Apart from the policeman, all victims belonged to Quetta's Shia Hazara community," police said, while terming the incident an act of targeted killing. The deceased policeman was identified as Kala Khan.

Two of the deceased were brothers who were entering the passport office along with their parents when the waiting gunmen opened fire. Police and Frontier Corps personnel arrived at the site of attack and initiated an investigation into the incident.

"The boys, in their twenties, were killed in the shooting while their parents were wounded and the policeman who was passing by the site was also killed after he shot and wounded one attacker," senior police official Abdul Razzaq Cheema said.

He added that two gunmen were involved in the shooting but they had others assist to them in escaping the scene. Provincial Home Secretary Akbar Hussain Durrani confirmed the shooting and the casualties.

The deceased received multiple bullets in their heads, police said. In the aftermath of the attack, shops in the area were also closed.

The incident comes a day after a blast killed one person and injured 19 others in Quetta's Bacha Khan Chowk.

Hazara community members stage sit-in

Members of Quetta's Hazara community staged a sit-in outside the Inpector General Police (IGP) Moha­m­­mad Amlesh Khan's office to condemn the attack on Hazaras. The protesters brought the bodies of the victims along with them to mourn the killings.

Sectarian violence — in particular by Sunni hardliners against the Shias that make up roughly 20 per cent of Pakistan's 200 million people — has claimed thousands of lives in the country over the past decade.
