At least two policemen were killed and three others were injured after terrorists targeted personnel guarding an oil and gas exploration company’s camp in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Dera Ismail Khan in Pakistan on Tuesday.
Speaking to Dawn.com about today’s attack, DI Khan Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Asfar Ali Shah mentioned that unidentified armed assailants attacked a camp operated by Al-Haj Oil and Gas Private Drilling Company, resulting in the martyrdom of two police officers who were stationed there.
The wounded personnel were taken to a nearby medical facility for treatment.
The condition of them is said to be critical.
DSP Shah told Dawn News that the attackers specifically targeted the police officers stationed at the camp of the oil exploration company.
The deceased officers were identified as ASI Rehmat Ali and Khan Arif.
Pakistan is witnessing a rise in terror activities in recent times.
The spike happened after TTP ended its ceasefire with the government in November last year.
