In an attempt to sabotage celebrations of independence day, anti-state elements targeted a Frontier Corps vehicle in August by planting an explosive remote-controlled device in a motorbike on Mall Road in Chaman, Balochistan. The blast took place before an office of special branch police. This left one person dead and 15 others, including four FC personnel, injured.
