QUETTA: Three Frontier Corps personnel have been injured in an IED attack near Kuchlak at the Quetta-Chaman Highway late on Tuesday night.

According to officials, the IED exploded close to the personnel’s vehicle, which was damaged as a result of the powerful blast.

The window panes of a nearby building were smashed due to the explosion’s intensity.

Police and FC personnel shifted the injured soldiers to Quetta’s Combined Military Hospital.

“It seems like a remote control IED blast,” a senior police officer posted in Kuchlak told Dawn.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast.
