Two security personnel martyred in terrorist attack along Pakistan-Iran border

June 01, 2023


Two security forces personnel were martyred during intense fire exchange with terrorists in Singwan Area of Dist Kech of Balochistan along Pakistan-Iran Border.
According to ISPR, a group of terrorists targeted a security forces' post in Singwan area of District Kech of Balochistan along Pakistan-Iran border.
Since troops on the post were already alert and responded gallantly with all available weapons, a heavy fire exchange ensued. Security forces pushed back the terrorists successfully.
However, during the intense fire exchange, two brave soldiers, Sepoy Hasnain Ishtiaq and Sepoy Inayat Ullah embraced martyrdom while fighting bravely with the terrorists.
Security forces have launched an immediate sanitization operation in the area and are in communication with Iranian authorities across as well to deny terrorists any opportunity to escape.
Meanwhile, Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah Khan has strongly condemned terrorist attack and paid tributes to the martyred soldiers.
In a statement, he highlighted the professionalism and dedication of the security forces, saying that the successful retreat of the terrorists was a testament to the excellent training the soldiers.
On the other hand, Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo also condemned the attack of the miscreants at the security forces' check post at Kech district.
In a statement, he expressed his profound grief and sorrow over the martyrdom of two security personnel in the firing incident.

I believe recently patrols alongside the border were stepped up to stop smuggling and cross border illegal travel

This leaves the terrorists stuck on either side so they are currently try to hit these posts from the Iranian side
The decomposed bodies of two individuals discovered near the Nasirabad area of Turbat town have been identified as Jalal and Khadim Shakir. Working in the Gulf countries of Dubai and Muscat.

They had recently returned to their hometown for vacation. It is a tragic reality that innocent civilians like Jalal and Khadim Shakir are targeted and killed by Baloch terrorist organizations in the region.

These organizations resort to violence when individuals refuse to assist them in their terrorist activities, aid in their facilitation, participate in acts of terrorism, or refuse to pay extortion money.

This unfortunate incident sheds light on the grave consequences faced by innocent civilians who stand against or refuse to be involved in the illicit activities of these hostile agencies backed terrorist organizations.

A police official was martyred and two more injured in a suicide attack on a police van in Balochistan’s Turbat on Saturday, according to Kech Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Mohammad Baloch.

The SSP told Dawn.com that according to reports from the district, a police van was targeted in a bomb blast at Chakar Azam Chowk by a female suicide attacker. He added that one of the injured police officers was a female.

SSP Baloch said the bomb disposal squad and security forces had cordoned off the area while further investigation was under way.

Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo condemned the blast and expressed regret at the news of the martyred and injured police officials. He also extended his condolences to their families

“The aim of terrorism is to halt the development process and intimidate the security forces. The evil intentions of terrorists will never be successful,” the chief minister said in a statement, adding that the determination and courage of the security forces would not be dented by such acts.

“The sensible people of Makran will thwart the ambitions of elements who are against development,” he said, adding that the people’s welfare would be ensured and the backwardness of the province would be eliminated by continuing the process of development.

Balochistan Interior Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove also condemned the incident and sought a report.

He said the plans of terrorists at the behest of “foreign forces” would be thwarted and lauded the sacrifices of security officials.

“The war against terrorism will continue until peace is achieved,” Langove said and offered prayers for the martyred and injured.

In December, four security personnel were martyred and one was injured in an attack in Turbat. Official sources had said unknown militants had attacked a vehicle of Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan (South) in the Dannuk Gogdan area of Turbat.

The FC personnel had engaged the attackers and after a heavy exchange fire, four had embraced martyrdom, including a subedar.

It is also pertinent to mention that the suicide bomber of the April 2022 Karachi University attack, identified as Shari Baloch alias Brimash, was born in Turbat in 1991.

A police station in Quetta came under attack on Saturday, with initial reports suggesting it was a grenade attack, according to police officials.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Operations Quetta Zohaib Mohsin told Dawn.com that unidentified motorcyclists attacked the Civil Lines police station with a hand grenade, which was thrown near the gate of the facility. One police personnel was injured in the ensuing explosion.

The wounded policeman, identified as Saboor Achakzai, was taken to Civil Hospital’s Trauma Centre. Police and other law enforcement agencies, meanwhile, combed the crime scene for evidence.

The SSP added that nearby routes have been blocked off and a search for the attackers is under way.

In a statement, Babar Yousafzai, a spokesperson for Balochistan Chief Minister Balochistan Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo said he had reached out to SSP Mohsin and was briefed by him about the incident.

He said: “The best medical facilities should be provided to the injured policeman. May Allah bless him with good health. Terrorists deserve no mercy.”

Police in the city have been targets for terrorists of late. In April, separate blasts had left four police personnel martyred and nearly two dozen wounded.

In May, Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) emir Sirajul Haq narrowly escaped a “suicide attack” which police had said targeted his convoy in Balochistan’s Zhob, leaving six people injured.

That same month, a police officer was martyred during a raid in Balochistan’s Sohbatpur district.

8 dacoits killed in operation in Sindh’s riverine area: Kashmore police

Mohammad Hussain Khan Published July 28, 2023 Updated about 10 hours ago


Eight dacoits were killed in an operation in Kashmore’s riverine area, near the Sindh-Punjab border, on Friday, according to local police.
Shikarpur Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Amjad Ahmed Shaikh, who is also the acting Kashmore SSP, told Dawn.com that eight dacoits with bounties on their heads were killed in the operation.
He said the slain dacoits also included Soomar Shar, whose brother was allegedly killed by Ghotki police last year.
SSP Shaikh said Sindh police had trapped the gang by organising a party through a mutual associate who hosted the dacoits but was communicating with the Kashmore police.

According to Shaikh, the dacoits were involved in honey trap cases and one among them, Janu, used to lure prospective hostages to the riverine area in order to hold them captive.
Meanwhile, police from Punjab claimed that one of the slain men was actually their informant, Usman Chandio.
“He was present in the party when the dacoits were ambushed with his help,” Rahimyar Khan SSP Rizwan Umar Gondal told Dawn.com.
“Police in Kashmore did not provide us with an armoured personnel carrier and so, he was brutally killed by dacoits when he tried to flee. The video of his murder has gone viral,” the SSP said.
Gondal maintained that Chandio resided in Rahim Yar Khan, in Zahir Pir police station’s precinct, and had served a jail term with Jamil Indher, Janu’s brother. He added that the Rahim Yar Khan police could not retrieve his body.
A grand operation is currently under way in Sindh’s riverine areas to clear them of dacoits. The operation was approved by the Sindh cabinet in March.
Earlier this month, Sindh Inspector General of Police Ghulam Nabi Memon had said that most-wanted dacoits were being killed in ambushes, carried out on the basis of intelligence reports.

Most-wanted’ dacoits being killed in ambushes, says Sindh police chief

M.B. Kalhoro Published July 4, 2023

LARKANA: Sindh Inspector General of Police Ghulam Nabi Memon has said that most-wanted dacoits were being killed in ambushes, carried out on the basis of intelligence reports. Such targeted actions in the riverine areas of upper Sindh were continuing, he said.
The IGP was speaking to Dawn after chairing a meeting of senior police officers of Larkana and Sukkur ranges here on Sunday.
Lately, five successful ambushes were carried out in four dacoit-infested districts, he said, adding that 57 dacoits were killed within a span of six months.
The meeting took stock of the situation in the riverine areas of Kandhkot-Kashmore, Ghotki, Shikarpur and Jacobabad districts where a massive operation to wipe out criminal gangs is under way.

The law and order in the Larkana and Sukkur police ranges and future strategies to flush out dacoits from the riverine areas were also discussed.
Assures officers of APCs’ availability as per requirement
The Sukkur DIG, who holds the charge of Larkana range, and Larkana SSP gave a briefing to the IGP in the presence of the Sukkur SSP and SPs of the CTD and Special Branch.
The issue of Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) also featured at the meeting.
Speaking to Dawn, the IGP refuted media reports that put the number of persons still held hostage by outlaws in the four districts at 35-40.
As a matter of fact, the number is only 15 and a verified list shows that 12 of them were kidnapped from Kandhkot-Kashmore, two from somewhere outside the district and one from Shikarpur district, according to the IGP.
He said that the outlaws had increased their criminal activities to push back the police force, but the latter were maintaining immense pressure on them.
About the “honey trap” used to kidnap people, he said the Ghotki district side had been completely blocked by police due to which the number of such cases had declined. Due to the extensive network of police pickets in Kashmore, there have now been fewer cases of physical kidnapping.
In reply to a question, he said that 190 police pickets had already been set up along the left bank of River Indus, from where the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) passes, to contain movement and activities of outlaws.
“In view of the success of the scheme and strategy, we are moving forward to establish police pickets along the right bank of the Indus as well.”

Regarding the issue of APCs, IGP Memon termed the vehicles ‘lifeline’ of personnel, and said that officers had been asked to let him know about their requirement and the same would be provided. “Funds for the APCs is no issue,” he said, adding that the required funds would be made available to the police.
