QUETTA: Gunmen in Naseerabad district on Monday killed the driver of a truck carrying NATO equipment out of Afghanistan before setting the vehicle on fire, police said.
The attack took place in Naseerabad district, around 400 kilometres (250 miles) southeast of Quetta.
Hafiz Hidayatullah, a police official in the area, said four gunmen on motorbikes opened fire at two trucks, killing the driver of one vehicle. “The attackers then sprinkled petrol on (that) truck and set it on fire,” Hidayatullah told AFP.
“The dead body of the driver had already been taken out by his helper,” he said. Another senior police official, Farooq Ahmad, confirmed the incident and told AFP that the attackers fled the scene.
