KARACHI – A horrific bomb blast outside a local religious seminary in SITE area had reportedly killed at least six and injured sixteen other students, confirmed rescue workers.

The preliminary correspondent reports from the crime scene suggested unidentified motor bikers threw a hand grenade which killed the seminary students and also injured the local shopkeepers.

The rescue workers and police arrived the crime scene within no time and cordon off the area.

The injured were being shifted to the nearby hospital.

Those deceased were aged between 8 and 12 years. Four of the injured are said to be in critical state.

On April 25, PakistanTribe reported that Karachi police had arrested alleged target killers of one minority religious sect from the Tariq Road area. Additional IG Shahid Hayat revealed that the alleged target killers have links with one outlawed militant group Sipah-e-Muhammad.

“They have been working at Tariq Road area with the name FN Enterprises to camouflage their true identity. They had high tech spying equipment. They used to spy on their targets and take their pictures from a secret camera fitted in a cap,” Shahid added.

Moreover, on the same day, another horrific bomb blast near a mosque in Karachi’s Dehli Colony killed at least four people, including one woman, and several injured as two government cars were targeted.
