KARACHI: Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) defused a five-kilogramme bomb from its office in Karachi’s Civil Lines area on Monday.

“We found a five-kg bomb in the car park of our office and it has been defused with the help of the bomb disposal squad,” CTD in-charge Mazhar Mashwani told media.

Police said the bomb was wrapped in a shopping bag which had been placed in the parking area of the CTD office.

Earlier, the CTD office was evacuated as security institutions received intelligence reports about a bomb attack at the department’s office.

Incident comes an hour after a Dubai-bound private airline’s flight was evacuated at Peshawar’s Bacha Khan Airport over a bomb scare.

Around 200 passengers were offloaded from the plane of Shaheen Airline on the airport’s runway just minutes before the plane’s take-off.
