At least one person died after 10 bomb and grenade attacks rocked different areas of Balochistan on Thursday, media reports said.

During the attacks, several police stations and deputy commissioners’ offices were targeted.

“At least 10 bomb and grenade attacks happened across Balochistan, including provincial capital Quetta,” the senior official told Dawn.

A bomb, placed along a footpath on the CPEC road in the Spinny area of Quetta, went off, killing a passerby, Quetta SSP (operations) Jawad Tariq told Dawn News.

Police cordoned off the area after the blasts.

The deceased person was identified as 84-year-old Abdul Khaliq Shah.

The body of the deceased was shifted to the hospital for treatment.

SSP Tariq added that around 8kg of explosive was used in the improvised explosive device.

In another attack near Quetta’s outskirts, an assistant sub-inspector (ASI), Ghulam Raza, was injured, reported Dawn News.

During the attack, unknown people hurled a hand grenade at the Shalkot police station, which exploded in the courtyard.

The injured person was shifted to hospital for treatment.
