A suicide attack on a religious procession in Mastung, Pakistan has resulted in the death of at least 59 people, including children. No militant group has claimed responsibility for the bombing, leading the government to suggest that the Indian intelligence agency, RAW, may have been involved. The banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has distanced itself from the attack. The suicide bomber targeted clerics leading the procession and detonated his vest, causing numerous deaths and injuries. Eyewitnesses describe the scene as chaotic and bloody, with bodies scattered and injured individuals crying for help. The death toll is expected to rise as more bodies are recovered. The remains of the suicide bomber are difficult to identify due to the severe mutilation caused by the blast. A number of families have lost their breadwinners in the attack. The government has blamed RAW for terrorist activities in Balochistan and vows to conduct a significant operation against terrorist groups. The Chief of Army Staff has stated that militants are proxies of Pakistan’s enemies and that the security forces will not rest until terrorism is eradicated. In a separate incident, four security personnel were killed in an encounter with terrorists at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Additionally, four of the six footballers who were abducted in Dera Bugti earlier in September have been released.
