On Friday, armed insurgents attacked the Chinese consulate in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi on the Arabian Sea coast.

The sources said Achchu, who orchestrated the attack on the Chinese consulate, is now under treatment at Max Hospital in New Delhi, after being injured in an operation by Pakistani security forces near Sibi, Balochistan.

Three suicide attackers stormed the consulate amid a series of gunshots and an explosion earlier but were killed before they could enter the building in a vehicle packed with explosives.

Dr Seemi Jamali, a spokeswoman at the Jinnah Hospital, said the bodies of two police officers were brought to the hospital while one of the consulate guards who was wounded, is being treated.

The Chinese government's top diplomat, Wang Yi, said he was "shocked" by an attack on Friday on his country's consulate in the Pakistani city of Karachi and urged Pakistan to prevent any more attacks.
