At least 26 people died after back-to-back blasts rocked Balochistan’s Pishin and Qila Saifullah region on Wednesday, a day before Pakistan will vote in the national polls.

Pakistan is witnessing a spike in terror attacks in recent months especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

The first blast was reported in Pishin’s Khanozai union council.

The district’s deputy commissioner, Jumma Dad Mandokhail, told Dawn News that the incident occurred outside the election office of independent candidate Asfandyar Kakar, who is contesting polls from PB-47 (Pishin 1).

At least 14 people were killed and more than 23 were injured, he said.

The injured people were shifted to Quetta Civil Hospital for treatment.

The official said the explosive material was planted in a motorcycle parked in the area.

Security officials rushed to the spot and cordoned off the region following the blast.

In another blast which was reported in Qila Saifullah region at least 14 people were killed, media reports said.

The blast occurred outside the election office of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Fazl (JUI-F).
