Seven people were wounded on Monday in a hand grenade attack at the office of the National Party in Balochistan’s Turbat city.
Three among the injured are stated to be in serious condition while others sustained minor injuries.
Eyewitnesses told Balochistan Times two motorcyclists slowed down in front of the party’s office and the one on the back seat threw a grenade and fled away.
They added military helicopters were hovering over the city in the aftermath of the attack. Security has also been tightened at the entry and exit points of the city.
In a video obtained by BT that was captured immediately after the attack, people, though in panic, can be seen helping the injured.

“I’m OK. Help that one,” says one.
“Not on motorcycle. Find a car,” says another while trying to help a seriously injured person.
“There might be others (attackers),” suggests one.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
The National Party is part of the Balochistan coalition government, and its President Dr Malik Baloch served as Balochistan Chief Minister for almost two-and-a-half years before he was replaced by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Sanaullah Zehri.
