Noor Meskanzai was killed late Friday by unknown assailants in Balochistan town of Kharan. He was attacked by some armed persons when he was offering prayers in a mosque in the Kharan district as a result of which he received serious bullet injuries.
He was shifted to a hospital in Quetta for treatment, where he succumbed to his injuries. Meskanzai, 66, was a native of Kunri area of Kharan district.
The DIG police said that Meskanzai's son-in-law Haji Mumtaz was also critically injured in the ambush.
The miscreants fled after committing an atrocity.
It is pertinent that former Chief Justice Muhammad Noor Meskanzai had narrowly escaped in a remote-controlled explosion in the Reko Anjeri area of the Naushki district in 2015.
Muhammad Noor Meskanzai had served as the chief justice of the Shariat Court as well. He became BHC's top judge in 2014.
