KARACHI: An explosion has killed 15 people at the DIG CID’s office near the PIDC building on Club Road in Karachi. The DIG was not inside the building at the time of the blast.

According to eye witness reports there was an exchange of gunfire prior to the blasts that continued for 30 minutes. Sindh Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza also confirmed that five to six people opened fire before the explosion.

According to Ahmed Jung, sources claimed that the CID had received a bomb threat yesterday (Wednesday). CID had arrested a high profile terrorist ‘Iqbal’ belonging to the Mehsud tribe yesterday and had received a threat in that regard.

A lot of data on terrorists is feared to be lost in this explosion.

Casualties

So far, 15 people are being reported dead, while more than 100 have been injured. According to Express 24/7 Correspondent Ahmed Jung, the number of injured is expected to rise. Two FC officials were found injured inside the building. Women and children have also been wounded in the attack.

Rescue efforts

Hospitals are appealing for blood donations for the injured.

Express 24/7 Masror Hausen reports that 80 to 90 people have been brought into Jinnah Hospital, who were not critically injured.

According to Masror Hausen, in the initial panic outside Jinnah Hospital, Rangers arrested a person carrying a gun. The man claimed that he was a member of the CID. However, he did not have an ID card and so he was arrested.

Nature of the blast

The blast is said to have occurred from a car bomb or truck which drove into the building following an exchange of gunfire in the area. Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza confirmed this report. According to Ahmed Jung, 200kg of explosives were used in the blast. The police has also reportedly found hand grenades at the site of the blast.

Blast intensity

According to Express Tribune reporter Hafeez Tunio, the CID building has been flattened in the blast, while roof of nearby houses have collapsed. Windows of buildings as far as the Marriot were also shattered by the intensity. The whole colony around the blast site was also severely damaged.

Ahmed Jung reports that the blast caused a 12 to 15 feet wide crater in the ground at the entrance of the building, while 16 to 20 nearby houses were heavily damaged.

Express News Correspondent Nadeem Khan reports the intensity of the explosion was such that it was heard for many kilometers around and nearby buildings have been damaged. According to officials the blast intensity was the highest to have been witnessed in Karachi in recent years.

Site of blast

The explosion took place in a central, highly sensitive area of Karachi. Aside from the PIDC building, there is also the Chief Minister House, Governor House, Pearl Continental Hotel and Sheraton hotel in the area.

Official Statements

Former CPLC Chief Jameel Yousuf said that the aim of the explosion could have been to rescue terror suspects who were were being kept in the building. He added that the injured who are being taken to the hospitals could have those suspects within them and security at the hospitals should be aware of this as their accomplices could try to rescue them from there as well.

Renowned social worker Abdul Sattar Edhi, who was present at Jinnah Hospital said this attack was not the work of a human being or a Muslim. He said that terrorists are roaming around Karachi, and we do not know what their aim is.

CPLC Chief Ahmed Chani said that if a terrorist comes on a mission, he is fully prepared to give his life adding that there is need for pre-emptive measures and information gathering on people who enter the city. He said that this building was a softest target for the terrorists in the area.

Sindh Information Minister Sharmila Farooqui said that the government is not fully equipped to combat such incidents. The government is working on intelligence sharing.  She said that the government needs funds to fully equip the police.

She said that she calls upon everyone to give strength to the government, the police and the army to combat terrorism adding that we are in a state of war and everybody is vulnerable.

    The question again is, why weren’t the security forces on high alert when they had received threats yesterday? They had a high profile terrorist in their hands, they had threats because of him and they were NOT on high alert. WHY?
    They should protect their own buildings more carefully. If they can’t even protect their own buildings then how can we expect them to protect the common citizens of Pakistan?
    I don’t think any Pakistani in their right mind expects the security forces to protect them nowadays in Pakistan! Very Sad.Recommend

We should summarily execute these people. Besides everyone hailing from FATA, Waziristan etc should be banned from entering Karachi. Racist or whatever you call it is these people who are responsible for this mayhem. And the intelligence chiefs also be put on trial. Are they sleeping?

Very strange that we are very short of rescue and search equipment. These and other LASHKARs were suppose to be freedom fighters but now it seems that they want to free us from our lives. When will we get rid from these Strategic Assets and those who are backing them in the garb of Political Party/Religious Parties or those who always comment on this issue in a very Diplomatic Language “Saaf Chuptay Bhi NaheeN Samaney Atay Bhi NaheeN” though security agencies clearly know these faces behind the curtains.Recommend

    Our sympathies go with with the families of the victims of this terror attack and no country other then India understands better the pain caused by terrorism in the whole world. Its high time when Pakistanis realized that its not in their interests to keep giving safe havens to the terrorists. It doesn’t matter whether they are anti India or anti west; they don’t differentiate while killing innocent people. Pakistan must understand now that time is running out for their country before they get isolated completely by the international community. When other nations are signing free trade agreements; Pakistan is exporting terrorism in the whole world. There is a famous saying, “What you sow, so shall you reap .” And it fits on Pakistan perfectly. You allowed these terrorists to take shelter in your country, to attack India, to radicalize your own people and now you are paying the price of making this big mistake. This is what happens when you try to take a ride on a tiger. I hope and wish that ultimately a good sense will prevail in Pakistan and it will move away from the path of terrorism. Recommend

    @Sapan Kapoor: It’s Ludicrous & Sad that you choose such a news update to tell us that “When other nations are signing free trade agreements; Pakistan is exporting terrorism in the whole world.” etc etc. Our families and children are the victims & then we are to be blamed for getting killed in terrorist attacks? I think you should keep you opinions for some other fourm. I don’t want to blame India etc here since we should hold our own government reponsible for providing security to it’s citizens.
    To me it’s simple: this blast is a reaction to the terrorists that our security agencies caught and we could expect more reactions like this one if our security forces are successful in their fight against terrorism. I do believe that the CID etc should have been on their highest alert since this is a very sensitive area of the city but sometimes you cannot stop a 1000KG explosive from going off with a coordinated attack like this. I think the solution is only to take the fight to the terrorists.
    Again, I don’t want to go down to the level you went, so I won’t reply to your allegations.
    I hope Pakistan succeeds in fighting terror whereever it comes from. And my heart goes out to our security forces and all the people who were killed or injured in this incident. Recommend

    Its time to erect an Israeli style wall around FATA and the rest of the country. Although terrorists are recruited from all over the country, they all go to FATA for explosives and suicide training. Everybody going in and out of FATA must be checked thoroughly. The reason Peshawar suffered the most is because it is only a few miles from there and these guys would move freely in and out of there. All the terror attacks in the country are traced back to FATA. Either bring FATA into the 21st century (maybe 15th) or cut it off from the rest of the country.Recommend

    All attempts to create a Pakistani or Islamic identity have failed. Historically or culturally there NEVER was such a thing as PAKISTAN.

    There is such as thing as natural boundary of cultures and civilizations, and hate to admit it as I may, the truth is – lands comprising Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kashmir all are part of the greater Hindu/Buddhist civilization.

You talk about HR Violations in Jammu Kashmir, what do you call this? Freedom struggle of your strategic assets? Killing innocent either from other countries or your country is condemnable act and there should be no soft corner.
