KHUZDAR: Tragedy struck Khuzdar as a bomb blast rocked the peaceful streets, claiming the lives of three individuals and leaving ten others wounded. The explosion, originating from a motorcycle-borne device, ripped through Omar Farooq Chowk, resonating fear throughout the city.

In the wake of the heinous attack, Deputy Commissioner Khuzdar Mohammad Arif Zirkoon swiftly responded to the crisis, coordinating rescue operations and overseeing the provision of medical aid to the injured. Among those wounded were five individuals, including a woman, whose lives were forever altered by this senseless act of violence.

As the community grapples with shock and grief, Chief Minister Balochistan, Mir Sarfaraz Bugti, vehemently condemned the cowardly assault, vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice. “Such despicable acts will not go unpunished,” declared Bugti, promising resolute action against those responsible for the devastation.

The bomb, strategically planted near the bustling commercial hub of Umar Farooq Chowk, serves as a stark reminder of the ever-looming threat of terrorism in the region. As investigations unfold, the resilient spirit of Khuzdar remains unbroken, standing united against the forces of hatred and terror.
