KARACHI: A woman was wounded when unidentified armed gangsters hurled a hand grenade in Lyari’s Kalakot area on Tuesday.

Police officials said that at least two armed men riding a motorcycle threw a hand grenade near Afshani building in Kalakot, injuring a passerby. She was identified as Nisa Bibi, 30, wife of Saleem.

Nisa was shifted to Civil Hospital, Karachi, for treatment where the doctors termed her condition out of danger.

Injuries: Hand grenade lobbed in Lyari

Kalakot SHO Ayaz Khan said that the area where the incident occurred is a stronghold area of the Lyari’s kingpin Uzair Baloch, who is imprisoned at Central Jail, Karachi, after he was arrested by the Rangers last year. He suspected the attack was apparently carried out by the members of his rival, Baba Ladla’s, group members.

Sindh IG Allah Dino Khowaja also took a notice of the grenade attack and sought an inquiry report from South zone police chief DIG Azad Khan. He also urged him to collect the evidence and to make sure the culprits are arrested. A case has been registered.
