KARACHI: A bomb was found next to a private school building near Safoora roundabout on University road today on Friday, Aaj News reported.
The police, upon discovery of the bomb, reached the location with a bomb disposal squad and successfully defused the bomb avoiding, perhaps what could have been a catastrophic tragedy.
According to police officials, the bomb was a powerful 15 kgs of explosive material. It was made inside the country and could have resulted in a very big explosion if not defused with in time.
It is hard to speculate who might be responsible for attempting such a vicious act of terrorism. The police have begun an investigation into the matter. Though it was discovered by the school’s gatekeeper who instantly informed the police.
