Police carried out search operations in various areas of Quetta and arrested over 100 suspects on Wednesday.
The arrests were made in the wake of yesterday’s gruesome firing incident in Quetta in which 14 Shia Hazaras were killed.
On Tuesday, unidentified men opened fire on a bus and killed 14 Shia Hazaras in the Akhtarabad area of Quetta.
The Shia Ulema Council, Izadari Council, and Majlis Wahdat al Muslimeen announced a three day mourning over the incident.
Shops and markets in some areas have also shut down in protest today.
Security has been beefed up at all entry and exit points of the city.
Four days ago, rallies in Australia, the US, the UK, Austria, Norway, Denmark and Canada marked an international day of protest against the unending wave of attacks on Hazaras in Pakistan. The call has evidently not been heard. Indeed, approximately 250 Hazara citizens of Pakistan have been killed in the past three years.
