Two militants belonging to an outlawed Baloch insurgent group were killed by security forces in Pakistan's restive Baloshistan province.

According to Army's media wing Inter-Services Public Relations, the militants were killed during a search operation yesterday by paramilitary forces in provincial capital

"The militants had carried out attacks on the armed forces, planted improvised explosive devices in Quetta, Margate and Sangaan areas of the province and also kidnapped notables for ransom," the ISPR statement said.

The militants were killed two days after three police constables were gunned down by four men on two motorcycles at a checkpoint in

Security forces have stepped up operations in the troubled province since armed men kidnapped a Chinese couple from Town in in broad daylight on May 24.
