Tragedy Strikes Karachi: Three Dead in Eve-of-Elections Grenade Explosion

In the lead-up to the General Elections 2024, Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal area witnessed a tragic hand grenade blast just hours before the polls, resulting in three fatalities and two injuries.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Irfan Bahadur provided details of the incident, revealing that the blast occurred when 17-year-old Farooq, the son of a police officer, was holding a hand grenade. Farooq, who emerged from his residence in Haji Limu Goth of Gulshan-e-Iqbal, faced a devastating fate as the hand grenade exploded, claiming his life. The incident also claimed the life of a passerby boy, while three others, including a woman, sustained injuries. Sadly, the woman succumbed to her injuries at the hospital.

In response to this distressing event, SSP Irfan Bahadur noted that Farooq’s brother has been taken into custody, and a thorough investigation is underway. Authorities have searched Farooq’s residence as part of the ongoing inquiry.

Sindh caretaker Home Minister Brig (retd) Haris Nawaz swiftly took notice of the incident and directed the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) East and the relevant SSP to visit the crime scene and provide updates. Recognizing the heightened security concerns with the impending elections, Brig (retd) Haris Nawaz instructed law enforcement agencies to ensure foolproof security throughout the province.

The directive underscores the critical importance of maintaining a secure environment during this sensitive period, emphasizing the commitment to safeguarding the electoral process and the safety of citizens. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the challenges posed by security threats during crucial democratic events.
