The Government had placed all law enforcement agencies on high alert to ensure peace on the eve of the Aushora procession. Amid strict security, the main procession of Hazara Town also culminated.

Quetta city was giving a deserted look 

The administration had blocked all roads leading towards the procession routes. All shops and markets were sealed by police to avoid the occurrence of any untoward incident. Quetta city was almost giving a deserted look like the flow of traffic was thin on roads of the provincial capital.

Quetta city has witnessed the worst sectarian terrorists during the last two decades. Sectarian terrorist incidents have claimed a large number of precious human lives. The minority Shia Hazara community has faced the brunt of sectarian terrorist incidents.

Aushora processions were also taken out in Jaffarabad, Naseerabad, Khuzdar, Loralai, Sibi, and other parts of Balochistan. No untoward incident was reported from any part of Balochistan on the eve of Muharram ul Haram.
