Two dead seven wounded in Quetta armed assault: In the Pakistani city of Quetta, two individuals were murdered on Thursday when armed men assaulted the victims and started firing. Dawn stated that the assault occurred in front of a sessions court, according to the police.
Sardar Nasim Tareen, one of the wounded, was beaten with fists by unidentified individuals as he left the court following a hearing.
According to Dawn, eight other men with Tareen were killed when armed shooters waiting outside the court started shooting.
After the event, the wounded were transferred to a neighboring hospital’s trauma center.
Balochistan makes up around 43% of Pakistan’s total land area, making it its biggest province geographically. It is Pakistan’s most significant, poorest, least inhabited, and most criminalized province.
Furthermore, in Balochistan, 70% of the population is impoverished. Across Balochistan, the maternal mortality rate is 785 per 100,000, compared to 278 in Pakistan. Although natural gas was found in Balochistan at Sui, most of the province still lacks access to it.
It’s crucial to realize that terrorism is not the only source of bloodshed in Balochistan. Most rebels are locals who desire their well-being and constitutional rights. Therefore, poverty and underdevelopment have been associated with most insurgent activities in Balochistan.
