Quetta: A suicide bomber was killed when he was shot by Hazara youth on Kirani Road, Hazara Town on Thursday evening April 26.
The bomber was attempting to enter a vegetable market, when some Hazara youth stopped him. As he attempted to blow up, the boys pulled off the detonator to his suicide vest and foiled the attack. He succeeded in unplugging a hand grenade due to which his arm was cut and he tried to escape, when some local boys gunned him down.
Shamefully, police arrived in the area 30 minutes later. To cover its utter failure in the wake of continued attacks on Hazaras, Police officials told media that policemen had opened fire on the bomber. Eye-witness told HNP, the police claim is a lie and effort to cover their shameless failure to provide security to citizens.
The bomber was carrying 4-5 kg explosive material. Those who stopped him told it seemed he wanted to target the crowded vegetable market of New Hazara Town. His body has been shifted to Bolan Medical College and has not been recognized yet.
