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?
Blast in SBK and Firing in BMC
@ahmed: Religion and humanity are not against each other. Please open your mind. Religion is always for humans and does not apply to Animals. Hope you understand.
LeJ at it again, Publicily claiming the atrocity. They are or will be running the country very soon. Last person to leave Pakistan please turn the lights out ( that's If there's no load shedding going on at the time)
these terrorists should be hanged in public. we can not spare these killers. quaids house be restored.
@ahmed: that choice was made a long time ago in Pakistan, and humanity lost.
@Pakistan: This incident has nothing to do with the teachings of Islam. The militants just took the revenge of their own killings by security forces in Kharotabad
Islam is a way of life. Islam is a religion of peace.
@Haris Chaudhry: Suicide bomber sister died for Islam. Muslims are already working on underwear bombs. Two underwear bombers were caught in US. Next may be bombs that can be hidden in body cavities.
WE NEED TO ISOLATE RELIGION FROM OUR STATE AFFAIRS.Pakistan constitute needs to be changed and pakistan should become secular state just like america and the whole Europe. In Europe or in america religion has got nothing to do with state law ans affairs.
We need to apply true democracy in our country ,there should be religious freedom for all the followers.There should be clubs,pubs and Casinos and then its up to people where they want to go .just like in EUROPE and in America where we see better muslims than pak,and those muslims choose mosques not clubs ,pubs or casinos.Remember there are unofficial pubs and casinos every where in Pakistan.just make him legal and put them out of the city.If we really want to get get rid of religious extremism then we must change Pakistan into a secular state and ban all the out fits like shameless L J.There should be strict rule of law and very competent security agencies.If any one breaks the law should be behind the bars,just like in Europe and america.
Did not we identify our enemy so far? Now political force should come open,and ask ffrom the security agencies.Who are they? and tell the nation on TV adress.
@san: This incident has nothing to do with the teachings of Islam. The militants just took the revenge of their own killings by security forces in Kharotabad
@Sane Voice: I THINK ALL THE PEOPLE KILLED IN QUETTA WERE EITHER DRONE OPERATORS OR SHIAS. SHAME.
Asserting some people and throwing them behind the bar is like applying some ineffective ointment on a cancerous tumor.
Those who fill young minds with such level of hatred should be identified and confronted ideologically by leading religious scholars, sociologists and psychologists. Roots of this evil are widespread and a multipronged strategy is needed to eradicate it.
Who says ladies in Islamic societies are underprivileged and incompetent ? They are far more skilled than our belief . Western ladies should learn these things from Islamic society.
@san: Agree, but our politicians do not have the cojanes.
It's because security didn't search under Burqa . If they had checked those ladies properly or banned burqa , this thing wouldn't have happened.
At the very least the Nawaz government should name LEJ but they are so cowardly. How would Nawaz and shahbaz feel if something happened to Marium or Hamza?
A female SB, which more likely was handled by the male handlers ....which im sure they all queued up for. Hippocrates
I suppose in the disgusting minds of the LEJ etc their female role model is a burqa-clad suicide bomber not a university student.
Shame on all those cowards who say that it is not our war.............by all means it is our war..............we have to decide right here and right now, whether we want to become a nation state or somalia, rawanda or burundi of south asia.
We have to decide......but cowards will always keep their eyes close...........PTI, PML, JUI all scoring political gains............
so after shia muslims it is now our turn hahahaha.....foster proxies
Just wondering what she will get in heaven??
Time to ban religion.
@ahmed: dude who listen your swan song, as per Islam, Religion first, remaining falls next, hope people around wouldn't call you blasphemy on your thought.
Allah should save Islam from interpretation of many.
Government won't ever launch operation against LeJ,, we all know the reason...!!!
Ban the burqa !
Security forces should not leave any body from body search whether make or female so that such incidents should be avoided at other places in the country.
When one talk about the security : no body should be spared at any cost.
So wehre gone the tall claims of PML (N) and its backed newly CM of Baluchistan? What a terrible welcome to newcomers.
we have to decide whether humanity comes first or religion.
Who cares who did this and no one cares that every time there is justification after the fact, only thing people are looking for is peace and security which all these politicians, FC, Army etc of this country have failed to provide even after poaching all of health, education etc budget
Wow a new level of commitment. How do you stop it?? Better intelligence and more transparency.
