Target killings: Seven Hazaras, one police official killed in Quetta


QUETTA: Eight people, including seven belonging to the Hazara community and a police constable, were gunned down in separate incidents of firing in Quetta on Saturday morning in what appeared to be cases of sectarian targeted killings.
A complete shutter down strike was being observed in the provincial capital.
The first incident took place on Brewery road where a group of armed men ambushed a taxi carrying people from the Hazara community. Resultantly, all six died on the spot and assailants managed to flee from the scene.
“The victims were on their way to Killi Ibraimzai from Hazara Town when attacked. It is a case of sectarian targeted killing,” Deputy Inspector General Police Qazi Wahid told The Express Tribune.
“Police have been deputed in different parts of the city to
maintain law and order” he added.
In another incident, a man belonging to the Hazara community was shot dead on Sabzal Road.
Separately, a police constable was gunned down in Shal Kot area, on the outskirts of Quetta, in an apparent incident of target killing.
A shutter down strike was being observed in the city following the strike call given by Hazara Democratic Party (HDP).
All the shops and markets on Prince Road, Brewery, Joint Road, Liaquat Bazar, Alamdar Road, Jinnah Town, Hazara Town and other areas were closed.
Stringing security measures have been adopted across the provincial capital with the heavy deployment of Frontier Corps (FC), police and other law enforcement agencies.
