QUETTA: A Levies man was gunned down by unidentified attackers in the Duki area of Balochistan on Sunday, police officials said.

The victim, along with his three friends, had gone to the MandayTak area, a tourist point, for a picnic when unknown men opened fire.

He was killed on the spot, and his body was shifted to the district hospital by the police. The victim has been identified as Shamsullah.

One of the victim’s friends told the police that the three men were praying at the time of the attack.

“Shamsullah received one bullet which proved fatal,” senior police officer Jalil Ahmed Marri said, adding the two friends have been taken into custody for questioning, while one escaped.
