The statistics released by the Pakistan Institute for Conflict and Security Studies (PICSS) on Friday revealed that a total of 20 militant attacks were monitored last month, in which 25 people were killed, while 37 others were injured, Xinhua news agency.

In February, the same number of militant attacks were reported, but the number of deaths and injuries were higher compared to March as 30 people were killed while 42 others were injured, according to PICSS.

In Balochistan province, 10 people were killed and 24 others were injured in four militant attacks.
