Ten injured in a rickshaw blast in Lahore, Pakistan


(The New Indian Express) – At least 10 people were injured when a suspected terrorist planted an explosive device in an auto rickshaw that went off at a crowded locality here on Friday 29th of November, police said.

The incident happened after the unidentified suspect boarded the auto rickshaw from Sherakot and got off at the thickly populated Chaurburji area in Lahore.

“Minutes after the suspect got off, the explosion took place. It appears that he deliberately left the bag containing explosives in the rickshaw,” a senior official from the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) said.

The authorities said they would check the CCTV footage to find out the identity of the suspect.

“With the help of the Safe City cameras we will trace the suspect,” the officer said, adding that 10 people were injured in the incident with three critically hurt but stable.
