Following the firing incident, police arrived at the spot and cordoned off the area.

Police have launched a search operation to arrest the suspects.

The law and order situation in the province has deteriorated over the last few months with an increase in threats and attacks on security forces and high-profile political personalities after the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) announced ending the ceasefire with Islamabad.
