    LAHORE: At least seven people have been killed and over a dozen others injured in a blast on the outskirts of Lahore on Wednesday night.

    The police camp has been set up for the security of the annual congregation of Tableeghi Jamaat. The nature of the blast is not immediately clear. Police said they are investigating.


    The injured have been shifted to the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital (THQ) Raiwind where some of them are listed in a critical condition, triggering fears that the death toll might go up.

    According to rescue officials, a caller who informed them about the incident said it was a cylinder blast. However, the impact and sound of the blast suggest it was a terrorist attack.

    Defunct Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

    ‘Security high alert’

    Meanwhile, IG Punjab Captain (retd) Arif Nawaz Khan has directed to declare a security high alert in the province. Khan has asked the CCPO Lahore and all RPOs and DPOs to strengthen security in their respective regions and districts.

    He also directed to intensify operations of search, sweep, combing and intelligence, while increase security for sensitive installations, educational institutes, places of worships and markets.

    The IG directed all officers to ensure implementation of all security SOPs [standard operating procedures] released. He also directed the CCPO to ensure that best medical treatment is provided to the personnel and officers injured.

    The top officer also directed further tightening the process of checking and monitoring at the entry and exit routes of the metropolis. He directed that all measures be taken to ensure safety of the life and property of the masses.

    Trail of terror attacks

    This is the first incident of such nature in Lahore this year, however, almost 60 people lost their lives in terrorist attacks in 2017.

    At least 45 people were injured in an explosion in a fruit truck stationed in a parking lot on Band Road in August last year.

    In July last year, 26 people, including nine policemen, were martyred and 58 others were injured in a suicide hit on Ferozepur Road.

    In April, six people including army personnel were killed in a suicide attack on a census team on Bedian Road.

    On February 13, over two dozen people including two senior police officers were killed in a suicide blast on Mall Road.

    Was it a cylinder blast or suicide attack?. Still seems uncertain with conflicting reports.

    LAHORE: At least nine people, including five policemen, were killed and 20 others injured in a suicide attack on a police check-post set up near a religious gathering in Raiwind on Wednesday.

    The suicide bomber blew himself up at the Nisar Police check-post near the Tableeghi Markaz after a cop tried to stop him from entering the venue where a bi-annual congregation was under way.

    “It was at around 9:20pm when a teenage boy approached the police personnel. When a policeman tried to stop him, he blew himself up injuring all of the 12 police personnel present there,” DIG Operations Dr Haider Ashraf told Dawn, adding that five of those cops, including two sub-inspectors, later succumbed to their injuries. He said that four civilians had also lost their lives in the attack, while the condition of some of those injured, being treated at various hospitals, is said to be critical. Those injured include an assistant superintendent of police (ASP) and two station house officers.

    Dr Ashraf was of the view that the attacker had wanted to target the check-post set up to provide security to hundreds of the faithful who came from all over the country to attend the event.

    TTP claims responsibility for blast near Tableeghi Markaz congregation

    According to Rescue-1122 officials, the attack took place a few kilometres from the residence of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

    They said that rescue ambulances took the injured to the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital at Raiwind and the Sharif Medical Hospital where the condition of five of them was stated to be serious.

    An injured constable, Abid Hussain, told journalists that he had been deputed at the entry point of the check-post to frisk those passing through the area.

    “I saw a young boy who was trying to enter [the venue] and as soon as my colleague stopped him, I heard a powerful blast,” Mr Hussain said, adding that he had lost consciousness after that and came to later at a hospital.

    According to people who had witnessed the attack, a massive fireball was seen at the check-post. Pakistan Rangers quick response force arrived at the spot and cordoned off the area. However, no militant group has claimed responsibility for the blast so far.

    Following the tragic incident, senior police officers, including Punjab IGP Capt (retired) Arif Nawaz and Capital City Police Officer Amin Wains, visited the site.
