Quetta, Sep 30 (IANS): Pakistan Interim Interior Minister Sarfraz Bugti said on Saturday that a foreign intelligence agency is involved in carrying out terror incidents in Pakistan, the media reported.

On Friday, the country was rocked by two suicide blasts in the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, which caused several casualties and left many others injured, Geo News reported.

Addressing a press conference in Quetta, Bugti vowed to establish the writ of the state at all costs.

"We know who is doing it and from where," Bugti maintained, Geo News reported.

At least 52 people including a cop died and 60 others were injured when a suicide bomber targeted an Eid Milad un Nabi procession in the remote district of Mastung, Balochistan.

Meanwhile in KP's Hangu, another suicide blast ripped through a mosque, leaving five dead -- including a policeman -- and 12 injured.

Both attacks took place on Friday during the preparations for Friday prayers and celebrations of Prophet Muhammad's birth anniversary, Geo News reported.
