QUETTA: Militants fired a rocket on Friday targeting the residence of Nawab Sanaullah Zehri, the provincial leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Balochistan's Khuzdar district.
Levies sources told Dawn.com that the rocket landed almost 400 meters away from Zehri's residence in Anjeera area.
A loud and powerful explosion was heard far and wide after the rocket attack, which caused panic in the area.
"No lives or financial loss has been reported," levies said.
Police, levies and personnel of other law enforcement agencies reached the spot and started an investigation into the incident.
