Trouble averted in Karachi as bomb defused near Tariq Road Market

Karachi Bomb

WEB DESK – The Bomb Disposal Squad (BSD) bravely and efficiently defused a 1.5 kilogram of explosive device installed near a busy Tariq Road Market in largest metropolitan city of Pakistan.

According to the police sources, the bomb was placed in a bag and placed at a vacant plot near the Karachi’s most busy commercial hub Tariq Road.

Police said a man informed them about a suspicious bag lying in a vacant plot at Khalid Bin Walid Road. The law-enforcers arrived at the site and called the BDS to check the bag.

The BDS officials secured the area and defused the bomb which they said was around 1.5 kg. Police and Rangers, meanwhile, searched the area, cordoning off its entry and exit points.

A targeted operation against criminal elements had been underway for past many months. But the gangsters never gave up to gift dead bodies to the city almost every day.

The Director General of Sindh Rangers – paramilitary force leading the Karachi operation – once said that thedesignated powers to his force were not enough to bring peace back.

Moreover, the country’s premier spy agency, Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), believed that militant wings of the major political parties in Sindh were behind the chaos in Karachi.

The leader of largest political party of Karachi, Dr Farooq Sattar, had related the peace in the city with the prospects of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM)’s alliance with Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
