anarkali blast in lahore an effort to sabotage PSL7 and pak-Australia cricket series

Interior Minister said the govt would provide fool-proof security to cricketers and fans

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed said that a bomb blast in Lahore’s New Anarkali Market was aimed at sabotaging the 7th Pakistan Super League and the upcoming visit by the Australian team.

At least three people, including a nine-year-old boy, were killed and 26 wounded in a bomb explosion in New Anarkali Market on Thursday. He, however, said Pakistan will provide foolproof security to the cricketers.

The PLS7 commences from January 27 while the Pakistan-Australian series will start in March-April 2022 in Pakistan.

Australians are visiting Pakistan after 24 years to play three test matches, three one-day internationals and a Twenty20 international and in Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi.

Interior Minister said cricket teams were being offered elaborate security with the help of the Pakistan Army, Rangers and other forces.

The enemy is trying to destabilize Pakistan after peace has returned to the country, he said.

“One of the motives behind the blast could be to create obstacles for the PSL and the Australian visit but we would not let that happen.” He said that Pakistan would defeat terrorists as it did in the past.

He said Imran Khan will complete his five-year term.
