Bilawal dares terrorists as key cop survives bombing

bilawal-dares-terrorists-after-awan-attack-1411679875-2765KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party Patron-in-Chief, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Thursday condemned the attack on Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Farooq Awan in Karachi on Thursday.

“Such cowardly attacks cannot deter the people and security forces from their resolve to restore peace in the country”, said he in a statement issued here.

Prayed for their early recovery, Bilawal urged the Sindh government to ensure best possible medical treatment for SSP Awan and other injured.

Earlier, a car bomb attack in Karachi killed two people and wounded six others, including a Pakistani police officer, who oversaw crackdowns against militants and high profile terrorists.

The convoy of Farooq Awan, a senior officer, who heads the special investigative unit (SIU) in the police force, was attacked.

Raja Umer Khatab, chief of the city’s counter-terrorism unit, said that the explosive material was planted in a vehicle.

Ghulam Qadir Thebo, the city police chief, said early investigations suggested an explosives-packed vehicle was used in the attack but added that it was premature to say whether it was a suicide attack.

“Awan remained safe, though he sustained some injuries,” Thebo said.

Seemi Jamali, the spokesperson at Karachi’s Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre, confirmed to AFP that two people died in the attack. She added two women were among the injured.

Since 2001, Awan has been a key player in the police fight against terrorist groups in the city.

He arrested the kidnappers and murderers of US journalist Daniel Pearl, in 2002 in Karachi.

The police officer also arrested Akram Lahori, a hardened Sunni extremist, who was involved in sectarian killings
