QUETTA: At least four people have been martyred and eight others sustained injuries after a blast hit close associates of BAP leader and Senator Sarfraz Bugti in Sui area of Balochistan province, ARY NEWS reported.
The details were shared by Senator Sarfraz Bugti from his Twitter handle, who said that four people were martyred while eight others were injured in an attack in Mat area of Sui.
“Baloch Republican Army terrorists were behind this attack,” he claimed and asked as to how long the state will continue to tolerate such attacks on innocent people.
Among 4 martyrs, 1 is my cousin Sain Bux, who is father of 4 kids. Provincial & Federal Goverment of Pakistan is failing to protect innocent people. This kind of situation will push people to take measures on their own. Writ of government needs to be implemented in #Balochistan. https://t.co/YnkxHBennp
