PESHAWAR: An improvised explosive device (IED) planted inside a manhole, which had intended to target Deputy Superintendent of Police Faqeerabad, Banaras Khan, went off on GT Road in Peshawar on Friday, causing no casualties or injuries, Express News reported.
The explosion, however, shattered windows of cars and a nearby Edhi Centre on GT Road.
DSP Khan said, “I was going from Ring Road as per routine when the bomb went off in a manhole near my car.”
According to sources, operations against insurgents are underway in the Khyber Agency which could be the possible reason for this attack.
Police cordoned off the area to search for evidence, including ball bearings from the blast site, whereas the damaged vehicles were moved from the area.
