Horror struck Quetta once again, this time in the disguise of 3 terrorists, who are being claimed to belong to Al-Alimi faction of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi militant group – which is affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban. The terrorists claimed the lives of 60 personnel, while over 165 are reported to be injured in the attack.

The incident occurred after 11’o clock at the New Sariab Police Training College, around some 13 kilometers away from Quetta city. The 3 men made their way straight to the hostels where the cadets were fast asleep late Monday night.

Earlier, it was assumed that there are 5-6 armed men who have entered the premises, later on when a clearer picture started to come forth, Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti told reporters that there are 3-armed militants who are equipped with suicidal jackets and other weapons.

“They first targeted the watch tower sentry, and after exchanging fire killed him and were able to enter the academy grounds,” he said. “At least 20 were killed but this figure isn’t final – we’ll confirm it in the morning,” he said. “Frontier Corps’ Quick Response Force (QRF) wing responded along with Anti-Terrorist Force (ATF) and [Pakistan Army’s] Light Commando Battallion…one terrorist was killed while two of them exploded”. He further added.

Prime Minister, Mian Nawaz Sharief, took the matter as the first priority, by canceling his scheduled commitments to arrive in Quetta and get a better understanding of the situation. While the entire nation mourns and condemns the cowardly act, many Pakistani celebs took it to social media to condemn the Quetta Police Traning Academy attack using the hashtag #Quetta.
