Earlier on Friday, a policeman was killed and three passersby suffered injuries in a hand grenade attack at a Rapid Response Force (RRF) vehicle in Karkhano Market on the outskirts of Peshawar.

An eyewitness told The Express Tribune that a police mobile was standing guard when unidentified miscreants hurled a hand grenade at it, killing the head constable on the spot and injuring three others.

The attackers managed to escape after committing the crime by taking advantage of the confusion and panic caused by the blast.

A large contingent of police reached the area and surrounded it. They also conducted a search operation and arrested several suspicious people.
