LORALAI – As many as five security personnel embraced martyrdom in an attack by militants on a security force mobile van in Lora Lai late night on Thursday, PakistanTribe reported.
Three were killed at the spot whereas two had sustained injuries who were shifted to hospital but succumbed to injuries.
Baluchistan Home Secretary Akbar Durrani confirmed the news saying “Policemen in a mobile were going back after visiting the local magistrate when armed men opened fire at them in a remote area of Loralai.”
