No militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack but Bilal blamed local militants for the attack.

A second police official in Chamkani confirmed the incident and told AFP that a search operation has been launched in the area.

Violence across Pakistan has declined in recent years following a series of military offensives against insurgents along the country s northwestern border.

But the remnants of militant groups are still able to carry out periodic bloody attacks, particularly in the northwest.
