KARACHI: At least four people, including an SP and DSP Kamal Khan Mangan, were killed and 10 others injured in twin blasts in the Sherpao Colony of Landhi area, Karachi on Thursday, reported Express News.

The first blast took place in a dump yard in Landhi, and the second blast occurred as rescue teams were leaving for the site. An SHO was also among the injured.

Thursday marks the eve of Eid Miladun Nabi (12th Rabbiul Awwal), which is celebrated across the country every year to mark the birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Security arrangements have been beefed up and cellular services will be banned in several areas across the country on Friday to avert terror attacks.

Last week, one person was killed and two sustained injuries in a hand grenade attack in the Manghopir area of Karachi. Earlier, two people were injured in a similar attack at a petrol pump in Surjani Town, and at a scrap store in Orangi Town.

Not being a terrorist oppologist over here but the nature of these blast makes one think that these Terroists have extreme political narratives rather than religious extremism as alleged by some. Why else would they target religious congretations, tablegi jamaats and deoband's ulemas if they were just religious extremists? Govt and people need to realize that these terrorist are now against the state and are using war's collateral damage as a reason to avenge ! With every passing day I find Imran Khan's reasoning and suggestions more sensible and workable! We need to realize the problem to address is accordingly
