A suicide auto bomber attacked a police headquarters in the Iranian port city of Chabahar on Thursday, killing at least two police and wounding 28 people, state TV reported. New Delhi considers the port in Chabahar, which lies in Sistan-Baluchistan province of Iran, very crucial for its strategic interest in the region.
"The terrorists tried to enter Chabahar police headquarters but they were prevented by the guards and they detonated the auto bomb", Marashi said without elaborating on how many assailants took part.
Chabahar city governor Rahmdel Bameri said earlier that four people were killed and many more wounded when the bomber blew up a vehicle, but later revised the death toll to two.
It reported there were sounds of explosions and shooting in the city on Thursday.
State authorities did not identify who was behind the attack. No militant group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
The TV station broke into its regular broadcast to report the attack, as such assaults are rare in the Islamic Republic.
Images posted on Twitter purported to show thick smoke rising from the area.
Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed that those behind the attack were backed by foreign countries and would be brought to justice. In September, gunmen dressed as soldiers attacked a military parade in Ahvaz, killing and injuring dozens.
Tehran often blames the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel for backing groups to destabilize Iran, something its rivals deny.
Chabahar is a free trade zone and the site of an Indian-backed port complex which is being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for land-locked Afghanistan.
"India strongly condemns today's despicable terrorist attack in Chabahar, Iran".
