A policeman and three assailants were killed when three suicide bombers attacked a training centre in Pakistan’s restive southwestern Balochistan province on Wednesday.

Four police personnel were injured in the attack that took place when the policemen were busy taking an examination and the assailants ambushed the main gate of the Police Lines area in Balochistan’s Loralai district.

Dawn news quoting Balochistan Inspector General of Police Mohsin Hassan Butt, said, “Police and other law-enforcement agencies retaliated to the attack in a timely manner and managed to kill all three suicide bombers before they managed to enter the Police Lines premises”.

The injured policemen were shifted to a hospital.

The process of clearing the area has already started and security has been beefed up in and around Loralai in the aftermath of the attack, the Dawn report said.

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani strongly condemned the attack and said, “The police force fought bravely against the terrorists. The swift and effective action has been taken by the police that shows that our security agencies are well prepared.”
