An FIR was registered in the Pakistan Stock Exchange building (PSX) attack here on Tuesday.

The FIR has been registered at the CTD Civil Lines police station on the orders of the Mithadar SHO on PSX attack.

It includes sections 302 (punishment of murder), 324 (attempt to murder), 353 (assaulting on-duty public servant) of the Pakistan Penal Code, along with some sections of the Sindh Arms Act too.

Four suspected terrorists tried to storm into the KSE building Monday morning.

They, however, were all killed by the security officers. One police officer and two security guards were martyred in the attack.

“The law enforcement agencies of Pakistan successfully foiled a terrorist attack targeting the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi, ” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.

“The externally-supported cowardly attack is another manifestation of the state-sponsored terrorism being perpetrated against Pakistan, which is highly condemnable,” it said.

“Pakistan has been consistently sensitizing the international community about the Indian leadership’s threatening statements to use terrorism as a tool to destabilise Pakistan.”

Also, Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned the attack on the Karachi Stock Exchange and said that the entire nation was proud of the brave policemen who foiled the attack with timely action.
