Death toll rises to 62 as probe into Quetta police academy attack begins

QUETTA: Pakistan on Wednesday mourned the killing of at least 62 people in an overnight brutal gun and suicide bomb assault on a police academy, the deadliest attack on a security installation in the country’s history.

An investigation committee has initiated a probe into the tragic incident after taking weapons and ammunitions that the terrorists used in the attack into their custody from the wreckage of the sprawling academy.

It is yet another flag-dropped day in the country, fighting a declared war against terrorism.

On the call of the provincial government in Balochistan, a three-day remembrance period was being observed in the insurgency-hit province as the nation plunged into deep grief.

Bodies of some 20 police recruits were sent to Turbat, a city located in southern Balochistan, for their final processions.

In a bid to show solidarity with the victims and their families, the business community in Quetta has announced to do a shutter-down strike in the provincial capital forcing almost all businesses and shops in the city to remain closed.
