QUETTA: Houses of Balochistan Assembly’s acting Speaker Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo and his 20 relatives were set on fire in Awaran district on Friday.

Official sources said on Saturday that over a dozen armed men fired rockets at the residence of the acting speaker. The rockets landed and exploded close to the house.

The armed men then reached village Shindi in Jhao tehsil on motorcycles and set the houses on fire and escaped. “My house and 20 other houses belonging to my close relatives were gutted in my native village,” Mr Bizenjo told Dawn.

When contacted, senior official of the local administration Abdul Ghafoor said rockets exploded close to the house of the acting speaker and damaged it.

He said no casualty occurred in the incident. “It was an act of terrorism,” Mr Ghafoor said. No group claimed responsibility for the attack.
