QUETTA: The bomb attack on Sardar Bahadur Khan University, Quetta – which killed 14 female students – was carried out by a female suicide bomber, Express News reported, quoting security sources on Sunday.

On June 15, a bomb was detonated in the parking lot of the university, killing 14 female students and injuring as many as 19 other students.

When these victims were shifted to the Bolan Medical Complex, a second blast took place and as many as 14 terrorists stormed the hospice. They killed four FC personnel and the deputy commissioner who responded to the attack.

Security forces surrounded the hospice before commandoes stormed the complex and killed the attackers. At least four attackers were killed while one suspect was arrested.

The outlawed sectarian extremist group, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), claimed credit for the grisly attacks.

This was a very sad incident. It raises serious concerns about security. All incoming ways to Quetta are checked by FC and police then how are terrorists able to transport and carry all these explosives in the city?
