Four bikers fired on people in Iran's Zahedan city, the province police department head, colonel Ali Yazdi said. Zahedan is the central city of Sistan and Baluchestan province.

Four gunmen fired on people returning from Qadir ceremony at 21:00 local time on Nov.2 and injured four individuals, Yazdi told ISNA. No group has taken the responsibility for firing on people, yet.

The gunmen were riding on two motorcycles and could run away after firing on people.

Earlier, on Ocr.20 an Ansar Movement member, blasted a bomb in Sistan and Baluchestan, a province in Iran's east-southern region, on Oct.19, killing two Basij milita members.

Ansar Movement is a Baluchi minority group which struggles against the Iranian government to protect Sunni Baluchis' rights in Iran.

The Basij militia is an Iranian volunteer force of Islamic government loyalists.

Ansar Movement calls Abdolmalek Reygi their spiritual leader. Abdolmalek Reygi is Jundullah terroris groups' past leader, who was executed in 2010, a year after his arrest by the Iranian government.

The last terror act of Jondullah group blasted at Emam Ali mosque in Zahedan, the central city of Sistan and Baluchestan in 2010, which caused 27 victims.
