Police see TTP hand in Karachi explosion
KARACHI: Police said on Tuesday they suspected involvement of the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan in Monday night’s blast in an area of the Defence Housing Authority.
The explosion along Korangi Road, near the KPT flyover, left a policeman injured.
South Karachi DIG Shahid Hayat said an improvised explosive device had been planted at a sub-station of the Sui Southern Gas Company.
“There is no doubt about the involvement of Taliban in the bombing,” CID SP Fayyaz Khan said. The bombing was apparently aimed at disrupting gas supply to a significant part of the city, he said.
The TTP has not yet claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.
