DSP among 4 policemen shot dead in Quetta

By Malik Siraj Akbar

QUETTA: Unidentified assailants killed four policemen including a DSP in a shootout in Quetta on Wednesday. Motorcyclists ambushed a police team on Sariab Road at around 11am, police officials told Daily Times. Three of the murdered policemen belonged to Hazara community and were Shia. Banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the killings, which appear to be part of a recent series of target killing of Shias in the provincial capital that has claimed six lives in a month. Ensuing protests by members of the Shia and Hazara communities paralysed businesses in the provincial capital. (Daily Times)
