Lieutenant Colonel Aamir Waheed, Lance Naik Masood and Sepoy Irfan lost their lives in the attack, while Lieutenant Colonel Shajeeullah and a havildar and a sepoy sustained injuries. The injured soldiers were taken to hospital for treatment. The security forces cordoned off the area after the incident and launched a search operation.

Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Khan Zehri strongly condemned the attack. In a statement, he said it was a cowardly terrorist attack by enemies of peace. He said terrorists will never succeed in their nefarious designs. He said the sacrifices of soldiers will never go waste and terrorists will meet their fate soon.
