Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed that those behind the attack were backed by foreign countries and would be brought to justice.

"The terrorists tried to enter Chabahar police headquarters but they were prevented by the guards and they detonated the vehicle bomb", Marashi said without elaborating on how many assailants took part.

Pakistan strongly condemns terrorist auto bomb attack in Chahbahar in brotherly neighbouring Iran that has taken lives of 3 innocent people while injuring others.

Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice), a Sunni militant group that has carried out several attacks on Iranian security forces, mainly in Sistan-Baluchestan, claimed responsibility for an attack that killed 10 border guards near Pakistan in 2017.

It hosts the operation of a joint port project between Iran and India.

Chabahar city is around 100 km from Iran's border with Pakistan. Later reports dismissed that the police chief of Chabahar was among the casualties.

"Given its exemption from USA sanctions as well as its strategic location, Chabahar plays a significant part in the development of Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province and the eastern [transportation] corridor", Bameri said, adding, "Enemies have put destabilizing measures on their agenda to cause insecurity in this important region".

The attack comes as Iran's economy reels in the wake of the U.S.re-imposing sanctions lifted by Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers.

That attack was claimed by the Sunni separatist group Jundullah (or Soldiers of God), which has claimed responsibility for bombings in the past. A year ago the group claimed responsibilty for a blast at an oil pipeline in Iran's southern Khuzestan province.

India Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Chabahar in Iran. "There can be no justification for any act of terror", the MEA said.

The US, the Israeli regime and "the terrorist governments in the region that support them" feel desperate and angry over the "shameful defeat" they have suffered in their attempts to strip the Iranian nation of their independence and freedom, he said.
