There have been a number of targeted killings in Quetta, linked to a separatist insurgency as well as sectarian tensions and crime.

Those killed in recent weeks have included several lawyers.

Mr Kasi had strongly condemned the attacks and local media said he had announced a two-day boycott of court sessions in protest at the killing of a colleague last week.

Those killed in the hospital attack were said to include Baz Muhammad Kakar, a predecessor of Mr Kasi as provincial bar president, and Shahzad Khan, a cameraman for Aaj TV.
