Frontier Corps kill 10 militants in Dera Bugti

QUETTA: The Frontier Corps on Sunday killed more than 10 rebels of the outlawed Balochistan Republican Army (BRA) in Dera Bugti, officials said.
The operation in the district’s Gandyari town, 250 kilometres southeast of Quetta, came just three days after troops killed 30 militants in the same area.
Officials said the town, close to the borders of Balochistan, Sindh and Punjab provinces, was the hub of a militant movement carrying out attacks on trains, bridges and security forces.
“We can confirm that 10 militants of the BRA have been killed in an operation in Gandyari today,” Manzoor Ahmed, a spokesperson for the Frontier Corps, told AFP.
“The forces started operation against the BRA militants early in the morning after receiving information that they are hiding there,” Ahmed said.
The death toll could not be independently verified.
