A five-year-old child was killed and five policemen injured when security forces conducted an operation against militants in Balochistan’s Dasht.

The Counter-Terrorism Department, Frontier Constabulary, police’s Anti-Terrorism Force and intelligence agencies raided a house on the Dasht-Sibi Road, around 20 to 25 kilometres from Quetta, on Wednesday.

According to CTD DIG Aitizaz Goraya, the raid was conducted on a tip-off.

During the crossfire, a five-year-old child was killed. Five CTD personnel were also injured in the incident.
