A polio team was attacked in Pakistan's Balochistan region on Monday, media reports said.

According to DC Raja Athar Abbas, Dharna Committee participants attacked the polio team in Chaman with sticks that resulted in injuries to four levies personnel, who were deployed to ensure the security of the team during the anti-polio drive, reported Ary News.

The attackers tried to snatch the vaccine and weapons from the police and levies personnel, the DC Chaman told the newspaper and vowed to take action against the people involved in the attack.

The Balochistan government has also condemned the incident.

Last week, Pakistan registered the fourth polio case in the country.

A 2-year-old boy from Bharkan union council in Sindh’s Shikarpur district is the latest victim of the disease.
