According to information cited by Geo News, the casualty toll from the suicide bombing explosion in Balochistan’s Mastung region reached 60 on Sunday. Pakistan’s ministers are now accusing India of being responsible since their country is adamant about identifying the bombers.

In the Mastung district, a suicide bomber on Friday targeted civilians getting ready for an Eid Miladun Nabi march. According to district health officer Abdul Rasheed, at least 52 people were initially killed, including youngsters between the ages of 9 and 11, and at least 58 individuals were injured.

However, a Pakistani minister has now claimed that India’s intelligence service was behind the horrific suicide bombing attempt that destroyed the Mastung mosque when a bomber detonated his explosives next to a police car.

For many years, Pakistan has asserted that India has supported and sponsored terrorist organizations there. India has always denied Pakistan’s allegations.

Sarfaraz Bugti, the interior minister of Pakistan, was quoted by Reuters as saying, “Civil, military, and all other institutions will jointly strike against the elements involved in the Mastung suicide bombing.”

Additionally, the Pakistani interior minister was quoted as claiming, “RAW is involved in the suicide attack,” placing the blame on the Indian intelligence service Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). The minister, however, provided no evidence or supporting details for his assertion.

After the explosion in Balochistan, another incident happened at a mosque in Hangu, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Five individuals, including a police officer, were killed in that incident, while 12 others were hurt.

During the Friday sermon, the event occurred within the confines of Police Station Doaba. The Pakistani security forces in Balochistan filed the first information report (FIR) about the suicide bombing in Mastung earlier in the day.
