Teenage girl 'goes missing' after bomb blast at Karachi market
KARACHI – A teenage girl has reportedly gone missing after a stampede caused by a blast in the Saddar area of the country’s seaside metropolis this week.
The brother of the missing girl, identified as Sawera, has lodged an FIR at Preedy Police Station, saying that his mother, wife and sister were busy shopping when an explosive device went off in the commercial area of the port city.
He said that his mother, Darakhshan Bibi, passed out and she found after regaining her consciousness that Sawera was missing. The brother of the teen girl said that Sawera was probably kidnapped.
Meanwhile, the law enforcers said they have registered a kidnapping case under section 365 of the Pakistan Penal Code and have started the investigation.
On Thursday, a bomb blast killed at least one person and wounded 13 others. An IED planted on a two-wheeler went off around midnight in the busy Saddar commercial area.
The attackers apparently targeted a van carrying Pakistani maritime security forces. The powerful explosion damaged several vehicles, including the van, and two of the security personnel also suffered injuries.
