Ten police officers were killed and six were injured in a late-night attack on the Chodwan police station in Dera Ismail Khan, as confirmed by an official. This attack occurred just three days before the upcoming general elections scheduled for February 8, raising security concerns in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan due to recent multiple attacks in both provinces.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and the security apparatus had previously reassured the public that the polls would proceed as planned, despite the ongoing security threats. Caretaker KP Chief Minister Justice (rtd) Arshad Hussain Shah condemned the attack and expressed his condolences for the lives lost.
