Karachi: 40 killed, as VIPs enjoy full security at a ceremony

- March 03, 2013 - Updated 2239 PKT - From Web Edition

KARACHI: One of Karachi's worst bomb blasts killed 40 people including women and children and left 135 others wounded on Sunday, as the police and rangers of the entire city apparently remained deployed on security of dignitaries at an engagement ceremony of a provincial advisor.


People of the ill-fated residential area of Abbas Town were struck by a high intensity bomb and were left on their own to carry out the rescue and relief activities, as almost all the security personnel of the city remained engaged in providing their services to the dignitaries at the engagement of Sindh Chief Minister's Advisor Sharmila Farooqui at Mohatta Palace - a posh location of the city.


Till last reports, residents of the area were trying to pull the people out of the rubble on self-help basis as no government team or machinery was deployed to carry out the rescue work at the terror-hit Abbas Town.


Forty people including women and children were killed and 135 others sustained injuries after a powerful blast ripped through the densely populated area of the provincial capital.
