Cracker Blast

A cracker blast at stall in Karachi’s Gulshan e Hadeed area left seven people injured, said police late Tuesday night.

According to the details, the cracker attack was carried out at a stall selling national flags and badges in the area, according to the police.

The unidentified men fled after hurling the cracker.

Rescue workers told that the injured, including a woman, were shifted to a nearby hospital.

The officials of Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) have been summoned on the incident’s site to ascertain the genre of the explosion.

According to BDS, the terrorists have used a Russian-made RGD-1 grenade in the attack. The probe report stated that the BDS officials found the lever, safety pin, and particles of the grenade from the scene which were sent to the laboratory for further investigation.

The investigators found similarities in the recent grenade attack with the explosion that took place in Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) rally in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal area, leaving one dead and more than 30 wounded.
