Balochistan [Pakistan], August 10 (ANI): One person was killed and many feared injured after a blast took place in the Khuzdar area of Balochistan province, according to Dawn newspaper on Wednesday.

Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo condemned the explosion, the publication stated citing a statement issued from his office.

Bizenjo expressed regret at the loss of life and said the elements subjecting the people to terrorism were not deserving of any leeway.

As per Dawn, the chief minister ordered police and administration officials to bring such elements involved in the incident to justice and improve the effectiveness of security measures in the area as well as the whole province.

Last month, three people were injured, including a policeman in a blast outside the Turbat Stadium in Balochistan's Quetta.
