QUETTA: At least three people were killed in two separate firing incidents in the southwestern province of Balochistan on Thursday, DawnNews reported.
According to the police, unknown motorcyclists opened indiscriminate fire in Pasni Bazaar, 720 kilometres (447 miles) southwest of the provincial capital Quetta. Subsequently, one person was killed and another sustained severe injuries.
The injured person died on his way to the hospital.
Meanwhile, another person was killed due to firing in Panjgur bazaar.
Balochistan has been under the grip of sectarian violence and attacks of Baloch separatists and unknown elements since more than a decade.
Scores of people have lost their lives in sectarian suicide bombings and target killings.
The provincial government appears to be helpless in tackling the growing threat of terrorist incidents.
