At least six people including three police officials were killed and 10 injured after a blast ripped through New Sariyab, area of Quetta on Wednesday. He said 22 people were wounded, eight of them critically. He further said that Sariab Mill incident will be thoroughly probed and the culprits will be brought to book.

Provincial home minister Sarfaraz Bugti told media that a auto rammed the police vehicle before catching fire, adding it was "apparently a suicide attack".

Mr. Sarfraz Bugti said that Pakistan will take the war against terrorists and their facilitators to their ultimate conclusion. Security officials said the explosion set on fire multiple vehicles at Pishin Stop in the provincial capital of Balochistan.

Home Minister Bugti, while condemning the attack, said the war against terrorism was not over and would go on until no terrorist remained in the area. "Our security forces have destroyed terrorist networks from here and now they plan their attacks from across the border", he said. They expressed a deep sense of sorrow over the loss of precious human lives in the tragic incident. Balochistan has faced many such attacks in recent months, with security personnel in the province often being targeted in roadside explosions and suicide attacks.

He added, "Terrorists plan their activities from Afghanistan while India's Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) along with Afghanistan's National Directorate of Security (NDS) facilitate the terrorists carrying out their attacks in Pakistan". Earlier in June, 14 people ─ including seven policemen ─ were killed in a powerful blast in Quetta's Gulistan Road area.

In June, a suicide auto bomber killed at least thirteen people, including seven police officers, in an attack near a checkpoint in the volatile city of Quetta on Friday, officials said.
