Unidentified gunmen on Tuesday killed two policemen in Naseerabad district area of Balochistan.

“Armed men opened fire at policemen in Dera Murad Jamali area of the district, which killed both personnel on the spot,” said police official.

“Policemen were patrolling on motorcycle when they were attacked by armed militants in the area. Deceased policemen were identified as Essa Khan Bugti and Buland Khan Gola,” police official added.

The assailants escaped unhurt from the spot and no militant group claimed responsibility for the attack.

Security forces on Tuesday evening also claimed to have foiled a major bid of terrorism by demolishing four camps of alleged militants in Balochistan's troubled Dera Bugti district.

“Two suspected militants along with weapons were arrested during the operation, said Spokesman for Frontier Corps (FC) Khan Wasey.

“Two alleged militants belonged to an outlawed Baloch militant organisation operating in the area,” Wasey added.

Balochistan has been experiencing incidents of violence and targeted killings for over a decade. The largest province of the country by area, is home to a insurgency by ethnic Baloch separatists and banned religious outfits.
