The Counter-Terrorism Department has registered an FIR against unidentified people for the bomb attack. The blast occurred near Hamdullah’s vehicle when he reached the Killi Chotu area, a locality on the outskirts of Mastung, while on his way there from Quetta to address a public meeting.
Police said that at least 11 people, including Hamdullah, were injured in the explosion. There have been no claims of responsibility for the explosion but many JUI-F leaders have been targeted in the past.
