LAHORE: A suicide bomber killed at least 55 people Sunday at the Pakistan-India border crossing at Wagah.

The explosion, which wounded more than 120, came at Wagah border gate after the “flag-lowering” ceremony culminated on Sunday evening which attracts thousands of spectators every day and is popular with foreign tourists.

“It appears to have been a suicide attack. At least 55 people have been killed and more than 120 wounded. Women and children were also killed,” Mushtaq Sukhera, the Punjab provincial police chief, told AFP.

Sharif expressed “grief and sorrow” over the attack in a statement issued by his office and ordered those responsible to be brought to justice.

His Indian counterpart Narendra Modi condemned the “shocking” and “dastardly” attack. “My condolences to the families of the deceased. Prayers with the injured,” he said.

Punjab Rangers DG Maj-Gen Tahir Javed said that three of Rangers had been killed in the blast, which came around 500 metres from the post itself.

There were several conflicting claims of responsibility for the attack.

Punjab police chief Mushtaq Ahmed Sukhera has confirmed that it was a suicide attack.

Speaking to Express News, IG Punjab said, “Our teams have confirmed that it was a suicide blast.”

The IG said that the suicide bomber was stopped at the gate of the parade ground at the border and detonated the bomb right when people gathered near the gate.

“Up to five kilogrammes of explosive material was used in the blast,” Sukhera said.

“The bomb exploded outside a restaurant near a Pakistani paramilitary soldiers’ checkpoint at Wagah border,” he added.

“There were security threats and the Rangers were prepared but when large numbers of people started to leave the ground, the bomber blew himself causing loss of lives.”

The police chief denied that this incident was because of a security lapse as the border is a Rangers area.

The explosion occurred in the parking area of the Wagah border between India and Pakistan, as the flag hoisting ceremony ended.

Initially it was reported that it was a cylinder blast.

“We think it is sabotage,” DIG Operations Haider Ashraf said, while talking to media representatives.

He urged families to give way to injured people and ambulances that are still being brought in.

The Punjab health department has imposed an emergency in all teaching hospitals in Lahore following the blast.

“The injured were initially taken to Ghurki Hospital, which is nearest to the site of the blast,” adding “Patients in critical condition are being shifted to Services Hospital for the treatment,” the health department spokesperson said.

Police and rescue officials have reached the scene and further investigations are underway.

    This admission by Jundallah confirms that they are Indian agents, because they targetted patriotic Pakistanis who had gone to Wagah to reaffirm Pakistani independence in face of Indian agression. Indian ambassador should be expelled from Pakistan, and Pakistan should initiate efforts to isolate India until it stops its terrorism in Pakistan.

    Prayers to those who lost their lives and prayers for strength for people who lost their loved ones. Violent terrorism is not a solution to anything. If we the liberal and moderates continue our silence towards those intolerant types, we will soon perish. Terrorism is not between Hindu and Muslims, since a terrorist does not care whether he is killing a Hindu or a Muslim. His only aim is to terrorize and to suppress those who do not fall in line to their version of religion or cause. Some Pakistanis can continue to let their blind hatred towards India even if there is a Pakistani militant admitting the attack. Or they can strengthen their resolve to eliminate all form of terrorism good or bad from their country.
    Encouraging violent jihad for whatever cause (including Kashmir) is not something that you can wish to control. Such things always goes out of control and spreads like a disease. Hatred spreads way faster than love, because to hate is easy, to love is quite difficult.

    Iignorants and fools are those who reckon that Indian and Pakistan intelligence units are not activively involved in the turmoil and carnage which is being experienced by the civind lians from Waziristan to Bajaur to Peshawar rean gion and all the way to Karachi!!! Is Pakistan on the threshold of a military take over or the ground invasion of the Indian military. Why must the so called Jandullah if they were the perpatrators choose Indian Pakistan border town at Wagah?
    The American NSA could provide the clue who have complete surveillance of the region.

    @Candid1: this is a typical reaction of Muslims. Never accept your fault and always blame others. God’s sake For once accept that the fault lies with you and try to find a solution. Stop this unnecessary violence. Forget jihad and learn to live with peace with all and sundry.

    It is high time this idiotic show of patriotism is stopped by both countries, both cheerleaders and the performers look silly to say it mildly

    This suicide blast proves that Pakistan’s internal security has been totally collapsed and flopped because suicide crossed three check posts whereas on second check post checking is so strict and Pakistan’s security has been only for leadership and ministers……

    So long as this primitive concept of religion will rule the hearts and minds of people, these killings will continue to happen. People have to understand that there is only one life and it is to be cherished and not wasted away for this weird concept that has come to grip mankind.Recommend

    All should note that “newsrealities” is a blog, not a news organization!
    As usual falsely points to “many” indian consulates opened along pak/afghan border, but somehow can’t tell us where they are located!!!

    If India has done it then accept it thst they have done a good job.

    As an indian, I can say it categorically tha we are incapable of pulling off a job like this.

    I along with fellow Indians join in the sorrow of those who lost their close ones.
