In the terror attack foiled by security services on November 23rd, two civilians, a father and son, named Zahir Shah and Abdul Karim, were also killed whereas a private security guard was left injured by the attackers.
Three armed terrorists were shot dead by police in a well-timed response; Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) had claimed responsibility for the attack.
The terrorist group has been involved in several activities to hinder the implementation of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects, a mega economic deal between the two countries.
India has also been jealous of the economic deal between Islamabad and Beijing. A few years ago, security forces had arrested an Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav involved in anti-Pakistan activities.
Jadhav, who was awarded death sentence by a military court, has confessed to providing funds to the BLA.
