India Condemns Terror Attack In Iran's Chabahar

Footage showed smoke rising over the city.

He was referring to the capture, trial and subsequent execution in June 2010 of Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of militant group Jundallah who had waged a deadly insurgency in Sistan-Balochistan.

Sistan-Baluchistan province, where the bombing hit, has always been a flashpoint, with a number of attacks reported in recent past.

A suicide vehicle bomber struck a police headquarters in the Iranian port city of Chabahar on Thursday, killing at least two policemen and wounding 42 people, state TV reported.

Terror attacks in Shiite Iran are rare, but militants have stepped up action in recent months.

"The suicide attacker set off the explosion after stopping at police headquarters in Chabahar".

Iran´s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says "such crimes won´t go unpunished".

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, in a tweet message had strongly condemned the terrorism in Iran's port city of Chahbahar.

Chabahar is a key port city on the Gulf of Oman about 100 kilometers west of Iran's border with Pakistan. The perpetrators behind this dastardly attack should be brought to justice expeditiously.

India has said it is ready to invest up to $500m in the development of the port that is key to its ambitions to chart a route to landlocked Central Asian countries and Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan.

Citing Afghanistan's economy, the United States last approved a sanctions exemption for Chabahar when it re-imposed a second round of bans against Iran months after its withdrawal from a 2015 multilateral deal with Iran, which is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Arab separatists and the Islamic State (IS) issued competing claims for the attack, which prompted Iran to launch ballistic missiles at IS targets in Syria.

"The terrorist grouplets are mainly linked to foreign security services like those belonging to Saudi Arabia, and have constantly been seeking to destabilize our border regions", said the IRGC official. "There can be no justification for any act of terror", the MEA said.
