According to Pakistani media outlets, Saeed Ahmed, the commander of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) in Quetta, has been killed in a shooting by unidentified armed individuals.

On Saturday, the Pakistani newspaper Dawn reported that this incident occurred in the “Jail Road” area on Friday.

Police said that Saeed Ahmed was targeted by gunmen riding motorcycles, and the attackers successfully fled after the attack.

Meanwhile, the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) claimed responsibility for the incident, emphasizing that the CTD police commander in Pakistan was involved in crimes such as “raiding the homes of Baloch civilians, enforced disappearances, and killing non-combatants.”

This comes as terrorist attacks in various regions of Pakistan, especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, have increased in recent months.

Earlier, around ten Pakistani soldiers and officers were killed in terrorist incidents.
According to reports, during the current year, over 500 individuals have been killed in terrorist activities in various parts of Pakistan, with the majority of them attributed to the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

Pakistani authorities have consistently claimed that terrorist groups in their country find refuge in Afghanistan and that terrorist attacks are planned from Afghan soil, allegations that have been called baseless by the caretaker government’s officials.
