LAHORE: The raw material for explosives used in Saturday's bombing in Quetta was bought from a market in Lahore, Express News reported.

The raw material was bought from a chemicals shop in Akbar Mandi. Police has arrested the owner of the shop for questioning.

The records stated that in the last two months fifteen cartons of raw materials had been sent to Quetta in the name of Daad Khan. The police have confiscated the records.

Earlier, Pakistani security forces had nabbed 170 suspects in their operations across the city according a BBC News report.

On Tuesday,  AFP reported that security forces killed four men and arrested seven others accused of killing Shia Muslims, including a purported mastermind of a devastating bomb attack that killed 89 people, officials said.

The operation was carried out on the outskirts of Quetta, where thousands of Shias were demanding army protection and refusing to bury the victims of Saturday’s bomb attack on their ethnic Hazara community.
