Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Kachhi, Mehmood Notezai, said that the preliminary evidence suggests it was a suicide attack.
However, the exact nature of the blast could be ascertained after investigations.
He said that a bomb disposal team reached the site of the incident and the area is being searched after the explosion.
At least nine personnel of the Balochistan Constabulary were killed and 13 were injured in the bomb attack in Bolan, Notezai said.
So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
