DERA ISMAIL KHAN (Dunya News) – Two Customs officials embraced martyrdom and three others suffered injuries in a gun attack by unidentified assailants on Bunnu Road near a toll plaza here on Saturday night, Dunya News reported. 

Police said two Customs officials were killed and three injured when terrorists opened fire on them at a toll plaza. The dead bodies and the injured were shifted to the District Headquarters (DHQ) hospital. 

Police and personnel of other law-enforcement agencies scrambled to the crime scene and cordoned off the area. 

Police said the terrorists escaped before the arrival of law enforcers. A manhunt was launched for the arrest of the suspects.

Meanwhile, Interior Minister Mohsin Naqvi has condemned the incident. He ordered action against the perpetrators at the earliest.
