DERA BUGTI: Six members of a pro-government tribal militia (Aman Lashkar) were killed when they were ambushed by militants in the Dera Bugti area of Balochistan on Saturday, security officials said.
According to sources, volunteers of the militia were travelling to Phelaogh from Sui when attacked by the armed militants positioned on the hills. Six volunteers died on the spot while several got injured, who were taken to a nearby hospital later.
Security forces cordoned off the area and initiated a search operation after the attack. However, no arrests have been reported so far.
The Baloch separatists and Taliban militants are active in the province, and have been blamed for such violence in the past.
