โ€œParamilitary forces are searching for the attackers, who are suspected to be separatist Baloch rebels,โ€ FC spokesman told media.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack as yet. Further details are awaited.

Balochistan, Pakistan’s largest but least developed and most sparsely populated province, is racked by Islamist militants, banditry and sectarian violence between Sunnis and Shiites.

In October the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan said that more than 300,000 people, including minority Shiites and Hindus, had left Baluchistan over the past 10 years due to rising unrest.

Pakistani rights group Defence for Human Rights says as many as 2,000 people have disappeared from across the country, many from Baluchistan.

Rights groups accuse the government of gross violations including holding people in secret and failing to charge them or put them on trial.

Pakistan’s Supreme Court and high courts have also been investigating cases of missing people and issuing warnings to the government to recover these people.
