An explosion rocked the Chamrok area of Khuzdar city in Pak-occupied-Balochistan on Friday, killing the president of the Khuzdar Press Club, Maulana Muhammad Siddique Mengal, and injuring 9 others.

In the explosion, local journalist Mohammad Siddique Mengal was killed. The blast targeted Mengal’s vehicle on the central highway in the afternoon hours. He was the president of the Khuzdar Press Club and associated with a local newspaper.

“Mohammad Siddique Mengal was on his way from home to the university when the explosive device detonated”, the city’s police station house officer (SHO) stated.

An investigation into the incident has been initiated.

This latest bombing comes nearly a year after Mengal narrowly survived an assassination attempt by unidentified motorcycle assailants in Khuzdar’s Khattan Bund area in August 2022.
