Five Chechens killed near Quetta

1

Five would-be Chechen suicide bombers, including three women, were killed by security forces before they could attack a check-post in the provincial capital on Tuesday, police and Frontier Corps (FC) officials claimed. A FC man was also killed in friendly fire.
Police and FC did not show any explosives seized from the militants to the media to substantiate their claim that the killed were indeed suicide bombers. Police officials who wished to remain unnamed said five Chechen nationals carrying Russian passports with valid Iranian visa were on their way to Quetta from the border town of Chaman when police spotted them and pulled them over for searching at the Baleli check-post close to the airport.
The driver of the vehicle, a Chaman local, however sped off towards Killi Khazi in the outskirts of Quetta instead of stopping, with the police in tow. Police later caught up with the vehicle and flagged it down. “All aboard were holding their hands up for fear of police action, and were later taken to a check-post manned by FC Balochistan,” the police officials said.
The police, they said, opened fire on them, suspecting them to be suicide bombers about to detonate their explosives, killing some of them and injuring the rest. The suspects fell about close to the check-post, where the FC man inside did not react, they said. The officials claimed that some of the suspects had even lifted up their clothes to show the security personnel that they were not strapped with explosives, but reinforcements of FC and police rushed to the site and surrounded the check-post nevertheless.
They said that paramilitary officials kept telling the FC inside the post to abandon his position and save himself from the suicide bombing, but in response he kept saying the foreign nationals had no explosives on them. One of the women, who was on the ground, was seen raising her hands in a plea to the security forces to not shoot, but senior FC and police officials ordered their men to open fire.
Hundreds of rounds were fired from a distance of some 20 yards, riddling the all foreigners with bullets, but no explosion took place in the wake of the firing. The FC man inside the post was severely injured in shooting and later succumbed to his injuries at Combined Military Hospital. He was identified as Lance Naik Mohammad Sajjad.
Later, the bomb disposal squad was called in, which found nothing after sweeping the bodies of the foreigners with metal detectors. FC officer Faisal Shahzad and Capital City Police Officer Daud Junejo claimed, however, that two suicide vests were seized from the suspects, but they were not shown to the media.
Media teams also explored the vehicle of the foreigners but found nothing remotely dangerous. FC officials claimed however that 56 detonators, two kilogrammes of liquid explosive and two pins from the hand-grenade allegedly thrown at the check-post were found in the vehicle. Five Russian passports with valid Iranian visas were found from the bodies. The foreigners were believed to have entered Pakistan through conventional routes, as no entry stamp was found on their passports.
Junejo and Shahzad claimed that the so-called terrorists, who had explosives strapped to their waists, wanted to attack the check-post but were killed in pre-emptive action. Other sources said the suspected militants had parked their vehicle near a the FC check-post at Bazai Cross, Karotabad, in the outskirts of Quetta and hurled two hand-grenades at the post, which exploded without causing any damage. They said police had foiled the attack in brisk, pre-emptive action.
Junejo said police had received intelligence about a possible attack in the city, therefore checking had been increased. He said the suspected militants were aged between 20 to 25 years. Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Muhammad Aslam Raisani appreciated the security forces for taking prompt action against the suspected suicide bombers. “From the appearance of the attackers, it looks they were either Uzbek or Chechens,” a senior security official was quoted by Reuters as saying.
A police official said at least one of the attackers blew himself up before being shot. Junejo said the check-post was not the planned target of the militants and they had been traveling on the airport road. “The troops retaliated and killed all of them,” he said. “No security official was hurt, it’s all ok, it’s over now,” he said.

    This "senior security officer" must no nothing about the Chechens if he can not distinguish them from the Uzbeks. The two nations look completely different. I bet that there was not a single Chechen in that unfortunate group of murdered people.

    These five Chechans murdered in Quetta Pakistan were innocent visitors and they were shot brutally by Police for no reason, one women killed was also seven months preganant.
    Chechan Government should demand an explanation from Pakistan for the killings of their citizens and the officials involved in the killiings must be criminally charged .

    This is indeed a cold blooded murder. very Cruel. All the story told by FC is nonsense. FC killed their own person who has been shouting that these are harmless people and they are not armed. The waving hand of the lady gives a shocking view. Are our FC trying to act like Remend Davis. i am ashamed of in the past some respect for FC. What we want to prove. To please USA. i think the FC person will have this stigma for whole of his life.

    I think the FC Faisal Shazad should not of got away with murder. He did it to look good on TV and then realised it backfired. If this was another country such as England or America he would of definately got punished. He killed peoples childrens and a family, however he wanted to protect his own family so he shifted them to RawalPindi, and has got his self posted there because his life means so much to them? The pregnant woman did a ‘peace sign’ with her fingers, he should of waited for the bomb squad, but he is so use to taking bribery from quetta that he got away with it! I will be asking the GEO tv how has he got away with it and to ask for a explanation. How did he get away with murdering innocent people?

  15. Shame on col. said:

    I agree this FC Col. Faisal Shazad and his accomplices, all should be hanged till death. Its a shame, such a coward colonel. He got away with this cold blooded murder because he is a army officer. Shame on him and those who protect him. The whole episode was shown on Pakistani electronic media, and no action was initiated and taken against this animal. Shame on you colonel. I cannot forget the video of this brutal shooting and the way one injured women was covering the body of other dead women.

  16. Mixy12 said:

    Colonel faisal hai hai murdaabad murdaabad, chechans zindabaad. What a pussy colonel shot and ran away. If someone did that to his kids how would he feel? What if someone shot his wig off how would he like it? Penchod go hide now you loser, you can run but can’t hide.

    What FC did was injustice, he needs to be punished.

    Does this dumb fc think he’s a terminator or something. Terrorists don’t walk around pregnant or with there passports. How disgusting, if they had bombs when they were shot they would have blasted, this colonel and his senior were not making sense on the interview at all, this is why pakistan is a corrupt place. Feed people with money and the stories and mouth shuts and changes its statement. Think about it FC what if someone shot ur mum, wife and kids like this brutually would ur world not change and then on news it saying ‘THEY WERE TERRORISTS’, how would you like it. Your just a pussy cat who runs but let’s see how long you can run for, you might be a Sher over the tv and cameras so in reality why are you hiding?
