Quetta: Seven people, including a tribal elder and his two brothers, died after the vehicle in which they were travelling was sprayed with bullets in Pakistan's Balochistan region, media reports said on Saturday.
Levies officials told Dawn News that the incident happened in the Khurlam area of Murgha Kibzai, some 80 kilometres from Zhob town.
Officials told the newspaper that Ahmed Khan Kibzai was travelling in his vehicle along with his two brothers and some other people.
“The victims tried to escape from the vehicle but were not given a chance to save their lives,” a senior Levies official said, adding that the bodies of Mr Kibzai and his two brothers were charred after the vehicle later caught fire due to firing.
