According to police reports, the perpetrators of the incident managed to escape the scene unharmed.

The deputy commissioner was instructed to submit a report regarding the attack by Balochistan Home Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove, who also severely denounced the assault.

In a statement made following the assault, Langove promised that those responsible will face punishment.

According to him, the government has promised to give security to the polio teams taking part in the campaign.

Balochistan health department has started a five-day anti-polio campaign to guarantee that youngsters receive the vaccine.

The campaign officially started on October 24. A police head constable who was manning the polio team in the Balochistan province of Pishin was shot and killed by armed terrorists two days before this attack in Chaman.
