Targeted attacks highlight delicate security situation prevailing in certain regions of province

QUETTA:

 

Two separate bomb blasts rocked the Kech and Panjgur districts of Balochistan on Tuesday.

 

There were no immediate reports of any casualties but the explosions prompted apprehensions about security, as the country approaches the February 8 general elections.

Unidentified assailants lobbed a grenade at the offices of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) in the Hoshop area of Kech district, levies sources told The Express Tribune. The grenade exploded on the premises of offices and extent of the damage was yet to be ascertained.

In another incident in the Surdu area of Panjgur, a bomb blast occurred at the residence of National Party (NP) leader Abdul Qadeer Sajdi. Reports indicate that the attack coincided with a crucial meeting concerning the general elections, adding a political dimension to the incident.

These targeted attacks highlight the delicate security situation prevailing in certain areas of Balochistan, ahead of the elections. Authorities are anticipated to enhance security measures to safeguard candidates, political gatherings, and electoral processes.

Recently, Balochistan has witnessed a sharp rise in the number of low-scale bomb explosions targeting election campaign office and candidates across the province. The Balochistan government has made fool-proof security measures to avert untoward incidents on the elections.
