Quetta: Pakistani security forces arrested a suspected woman suicide bomber in Quetta city of Balochistan on Sunday, media reports said.

According to reports, she was arrested at a moment when she was planning to launch a suicide attack.

The woman reportedly linked with the banned militant Baloch Liberation Front (BLF) was transported to Quetta for allegedly carrying out a suicide attack, reports Afghanistani news agency Khaama Press.

“The woman was arrested from near a park in Quetta’s Satellite Town when teams of CTD and intelligence agencies conducted an operation against the outlawed Baloch Liberation Front,” a CTD official told the news agency.

“She had a bag with the suicide jacket that had four to five kilograms of explosives on it,” he said.

“We got an intelligence tip-off that the BLF had sent a suicide bomber to attack a key installation in Quetta. We have identified her as Mahbal, wife of Bebagar alias Nadeem,” he added.
