ISLAMABAD – Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Friday directed departments concerned to beef up the security despite closing for faithfuls in the federal capital.

In a statement issued here, he expressed his repulsion over reported closure of a shrine in Islamabad due to security reasons.

The statement followed a suicide blast ripped through the Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine on Thursday killing at least 80 people and injuring numbers of people.
