CCPO Karachi Waseem Ahmad told newsmen on Tuesday that culprits responsible for the bomb blast at the Karachi’s main Ashura procession have been identified. He also categorically stated that the police is now aware how the Ashura blast was planned and who wants to disturb peace of Karachi city.
This is indeed a great success of our police and security agencies that they have resolved the mystery of Karachi carnage that was initially blamed on TTP in an apparent bid to shift the blame, divert attention and mislead the investigators. Thanks to the CCTV system introduced by the City Nazim and Police that enabled the authorities to get hold of 26 GB video footage that helped identify the culprits. It is now clear that it was a well-planned conspiracy to disturb peace of this nerve centre of the country’s trade and commerce. This also became clear when those behind the conspiracy did not stop at carrying out blast in the procession and setting valuable property on fire but also carried out target killings sending shock waves among citizens. The way the events unfolded in Karachi on Ashura, it raised serious doubts and suspicions about who was behind the plan and why the law enforcing agencies acted as a silent spectator to the mayhem. It is also the right of the people to know what actually happened and who is conspiring against the country. The Interior Minister has already promised that action would be taken irrespective of the political affiliations of the culprits and the findings of the two investigating teams would be made public. We would, therefore, hope that the culprits and their handlers would be unmasked to end the spree of speculations and suspicions. –Pakobserver
