QUETTA: At least 29 suspects were arrested on Friday during a joint search operation carried out by police and Frontier Corps personnel in the Killi Kirani area of Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province.

Upon receiving a tip-off regarding the presence of suspects in Killi Kirani and Ittehad Colony, a joint team of security personnel conducted a raid in the vicinity.

A senior police officer, who requested anonymity, told Dawn that the suspects were shifted to Brewery Police Station for further investigation.

He said innocent people would be set free after interrogation whereas those involved in subversive activities would be held.

The arrests come two days after a hand grenade attack occurred at two barber shops on Quetta's Double road.

Subsequently, three people were killed in the attack.

Chief Minister Balochistan Dr Abdul Malik Baloch took notice of the incident and ordered law enforcers to arrest the culprits.
