QUETTA: Wilson Masih, 55, one of the four men wounded in a gun attack in Mastung’s Christian Colony, died on Tuesday evening.

The victim was being treated at Quetta Civil Hospital’s Trauma Centre.

Civil Hospital spokesman Dr Wasim Baig said Mr Masih, who was shifted to the hospital from Mastung in critical condition, died on Tuesday evening.

“The deceased had received multiple bullet injuries,” said Dr Baig, adding that the condition of other three victims was stable.

Police said the four men were sitting outside their houses when they came under attack. “We are investigating the incident and raids were conducted to arrest the attackers,” a senior police officer told Dawn. No group has yet claimed responsibility of the attack.

Mr Masih was the elder brother of former minority member of Balochistan Assembly Handery Masih, who was elected in 2013 on National Party’s ticket. However, Mr Handery himself was gunned down by his guard outside his residence in Quetta in June 2014.
