Security forces foil terror attack on Balochistan governor: Sarfraz Bugti

A terror plot targetting Balochistan governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai was foiled by security forces, provincial home minister Mir Sarfraz Bugti told media on Wednesday.
Addressing a joint press conference with DIG Abdul Razzaq Cheema here earlier, the minister said security forces foiled a terrorist attack in Qilla Abdulla and arrested two terrorists from Gulistan area.
The terrorists, namely Hamid Bashir and Munawar, intended to carry out an attack on Balochistan governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai, he said.
The forces recovered suicide jackets and weapons from the terrorists’ possession during the operation.
Bugti said the provincial government is working on providing foolproof security to officers.
Speaking to media, DIG Abdul Razzaq Cheema said church representatives in the province have been assured of security, in a meeting held a day ago.
On December 17, nine people were killed and more than 50 were injured in a terrorist attack on Quetta’s Bethel Memorial Church, where Sunday services were being attended by at least 400 people.
