MULTAN: A disaster was averted when a briefcase full of explosives was seized from one of the bogeys of the Shah Rukn-e-Alam Express in Multan today (Sunday).

The seized explosives were successfully defused by the Bomb Disposal Squad. The squad said if the explosives had detonated, they would have caused massive destruction in the area. Police have started investigations into the incident.

The Shah Rukhn-e-Alam Express was coming from the port city of Karachi. The metropolis was witness to a brazen terrorist attack on the main operational headquarters of the Sindh Police’s Crime Investigation Department (CID).

Security forces are hunting militants belonging to the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) for their involvement in the deadly attack.

Ameer Hamza | 11 years ago | Reply A job done well. But lots of bombs and bombers need to be caught. And the recent bombing in Karachi of CID building shows, nothing is impossible for these Western-made Jihadis (full time terrorists and part-time Islamists). So our police wallas instead of hounding common bikers and motorists, should try and hunt the terrorists.
