Bomb at a Government Girls School, Karachi
KARACHI: Two vehicles and the wall of a government girls’ school were damaged in a bomb blast here on Sunday, police said.
They said an explosive device weighing about half a kg was placed near the boundary wall of Government Primary School for Girls at Gul Mohammad Kalmati Goth near Murtaza Chowrangi.
Two cars parked near the school-building were also damaged when the device containing ball bearings exploded, SP Akhtar Farooq said.
The SP quoting the bomb disposal squad said it was not a time device or a remote-controlled bomb. Instead, it carried safety fuse which went off in 40-45 seconds after the bomb had been placed.
The school was closed for the weekly holiday. No one was injured.
The SP said it seemed the attackers wanted to create panic.
