Bomb Discovered on Train at Cantt Railway Station in Karachi.

At Karachi’s Cantonment Railway Station on Saturday, authorities found a bag on a train that contained a homemade bomb device. The explosive, which was concealed beneath a seat on the Awam Express traveling from Peshawar to Karachi on Friday, was successfully defused by the bomb disposal unit.

Senior Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) officer Raja Umar Khattab speculated that this sabotage attempt might be carried out by a separatist organization. The bomb, which weighed five kilos and contained two kilograms of explosives, was attached to a “time device” that included a motorcycle battery that was meant to explode.

Syed Asad Raza, the Director General of Police (DIG) South, stated that the north of Sindh could be the target because the device was scheduled to detonate on Friday at 12 p.m. when the train was close to Sukkur-Rohri Junction. Luckily, the explosion was averted by a broken wire.
