In a separate incident a car was fired upon on the same highway in which two passengers were killed and two others injured. Balochistan's Chief Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti said that the terrorists involved in the killing of the 11 people on Noshki highway would not be forgiven and hunted down soon.
