The cracker bomb was thrown from the back gate of the residence, which left the gate damaged.

A contingent of police reached his residence and cordoned off the area where an investigation is underway.

In a separate incident in Mirpurkhas, a grenade wrapped in a plastic bag was recovered from the ablution area in the house of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MPA Haji Hayat Talpur.

Sources told Express News that police have arrested a suspect and transferred him to an unknown place for interrogation.

An unsuccessful grenade attack was also made on Sindh Law Minister Ayaz Soomro’s house in Larkana. Fortunately, the grenade failed to detonate since it fell in a pool of water in the house courtyard.

Meanwhile in Hyderabad’s Qasimabad area (Phase 2), Sindh Assembly member Imdad Pitafi’s house was attacked by unknown assailants on a motorcycle, where they threw cracker bombs in his house.

PPP is letting Sindh be controllled. Nationalists are not anti-Pakistan and neither is Nawaz Sharif. He is more open to trade and causes for the country in recent times as is evident from his statements and his party's administration in Punjab. Sindhi people should understand that grass-root democracy does not thrive when from the inception it has been brought about by fear. PPP has been scared into passing this ordinance so as to secure their position with their chief ally in the next election; this has nothing to do with Sindh, it's just been promulgated to provide a safe way for them to continue their power.
