Police reached to the scene and shifted the body to Civil Hospital Quetta for autopsy. Hospital sources said the bullets were fired at his head which killed him instantly. Balochistan Minister for Minorities Basant Lal Gulshan condemned the murder of Ramesh Lal and said that administration had completely failed to provide security to minorities, adding that kidnapping of Hindus was not a good omen.
