Islamabad, Mar 31: The chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) and Chairman All Parties Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Maulana Fazl-ur Rehman on Thursday escaped unhurt when a suicide bomber blew him-self up near his cavalcade at Charsada some 30 kilometres away from Peshawar the capital of Khyber Pukhtoon Khwa.
At least 12 persons including two cops were killed and dozens others injured in the suicide blast, which occurred near District Coordination Officer (DCO) office where JUI-F chief was supposed to address a public rally. Besides other party leaders Fazl was accompanied by former provincial chief minister Muhammad Akram Durrani and recently sacked federal minister senator Azam Swati.
Later talking to a private news channel, Moulana Fazal said that he was fine but some of the soldiers of his security squad were injured”. When asked as who was behind these attacks he said that there were different actors involved in the game but the motive behind these was to foment trouble and mayhem amongst the masses.
Pertinently, Moulana had a narrow escape a day before when a bomber riding on motor-cycle set off his explosive-laden vest near a police check post in Swabi district, killing at least seven people- including a policeman- on the spot.
