Aslam alias Achu, a key commander of the outlawed Balochistan Liberation Army, has reportedly been killed in Afghan Kandahar province, SAMAA TV reported Tuesday.
According to sources, Achu was killed along with his four commanders in a suicide attack in Aino Maina in Kandahar province. His accomplices have been identified as Taju, Karim Marri alia Raheem Baloch, Akhtar alias Rustam, and Sadiq Baloch.
Kandahar police chief Tadin Khan confirmed a suicide bombing had taken place in the provincial capital, killing two civilians. Another Afghan official who spoke anonymously said Baloch and a second member of the BLA were the targets of the attack.
Aslam is believed to be the mastermind of the attack on Chinese consulate in Karachi. On November 23, at least seven people, including three terrorists, were killed in a gun attack on Chinese consulate in Karachi.
