KARACHI: CID Police suffered a major blow as SP Chaudhry Aslam and two other policemen were martyred while 11 more sustained injuries in a blast in the Essa Nagri area near the Lyari Expressway.

 

The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Mohamand Agency claimed responsibility for the attack.

 

DIG Munir Sheikh said the bomb was a planted device and according to reports over 20-25 kilograms of explosives were used. Two police mobiles which were part of Aslam's convoy were damaged in the blast.

 

The DIG further said that Aslam's regular vehicle was being repaired; however the vehicle he was traveling in at the time of the blast was also bullet-proof.

 

Initially it was reported that the blast was a suicide attack and the bombers had arrived at the site in a yellow cab.

 

Condemning the attack, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon said the attack was being investigated.

 

CPLC chief Ahmed Chinoy said the attack will not dampen the morale of Sindh police and the operation against the terrorists would continue.

 

Meanwhile, CID anti-extremism cell In-charge Raja Umar Khattab said: “Tehreek-e-Taliban and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi were and still are a threat.”

 

He vowed to continue the mission of Chaudhry Aslam.

 

Reactions

 

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the attack and called Chaudhry Aslam a brave officer, saying his sacrifice would not go to waste.

 

PPP Patron-in-Chief, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tweeted: “Shaheed Chaudary Aslam had been threatened & attacked B4. He didn't back down. He died a brave man. Shame on cowards.”

 

MQM chief Altaf Hussain called for the immediate arrest of terrorists behind the attack. He added that terrorist activity in a major city like Karachi was a great cause of concern.

 

The attack was also condemned by PTI chairman Imran Khan who placed responsibility on authorities in Sindh.

 

Profile

 

Chaudhry Aslam, was seen as one of Pakistan’s toughest police officers. He survived several attacks on his life, including a suicide attack on his residence in September 2011 in which almost eight people were killed

A failed Cop who got punishment for not completing the assignment to "conquer Liyari",basically he messed up the whole operation Process and many key war Lords fled from country.whereas the police party which was accompany him had lost many people in this war with Gang war Lords,very Interesting fact was that most of them were Pashtoons from Rank of Informers to the rank of ShO. Any way his Last rituals were done by again a "MULLA"

He will stay in my mind, in my prayers. I know him since long; He is the one who recovered my motor-cycle from a group of naval persons who stoled motor-cycle from Clifon area and get punished through court martial.
