The bomb disposal squad to stated that it was a hand grenade, not a cracker as was initially thought.
Counter-Terrorism Department head Omar Shahid Hamid, meanwhile, says that the incident may have something to do with Bahria Town’s “issues related to the Malir area”. He added that a drive against Bahria Town Karachi (BTK) in Malir district was underway and the attack was “most likely that the attack may be linked to it”.
