The area has been cordoned off. This was the latest attack in a series of terror strikes carried out against security personnel in Quetta and other parts of the troubled province this year.

The bodies of the deceased, whose institutional identity is yet to be ascertained, were shifted to Civil Hospital.

The Sunni militant group's spokesman, Ali Bin Sufyan, said in a statement that Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Al-Almi will continue targeting security forces.

Chief Minister Balochistan Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo condemned the incident and sought report from the concerned authorities regarding the incident. At least seven people were killed on Zarghoon Road last month when a suicide bomber rammed into a parked police truck.
