KARACHI: At least four policemen, including DSP Kamal Khan Mangan, were killed and eight others injured in twin blasts in the Sherpao Colony of Landhi area, Karachi on Thursday, reported Express News.
The first blast took place in a dump yard in Landhi, and the second blast occurred as rescue teams were leaving for the site.
Thursday marks the eve of Eid Miladun Nabi (12th Rabbiul Awwal), which is celebrated across the country every year to mark the birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Security arrangements have been beefed up and cellular services will be banned in several areas across the country on Friday to avert terror attacks.
