At least 70 people, including BAP leader Siraj Raisani, have been killed in an apparent suicide attack near a corner meeting of the Balochistan Awami Party in Mastung.
Over 70 people were injured in the attack.
Siraj Raisani, a BAP leader and the brother of former Balochistan CM Nawab Aslam Raisani, was contesting the election for provincial assembly seat PB-32.
Sarfraz Bugti, the former Balochistan home minister, has confirmed Siraj’s death.
“My brother and dear friend Nawab Siraj Raisani is no more with us,” Bugti tweeted.
