IED explosion on Rangers personnel

A bomb planted on a motorcycle struck the Rangers' car, injuring 16 people.

KARACHI: An improvised explosive device planted in a motorcycle exploded in Orangi Town on Monday, killing a Pakistan Rangers official and injuring 16 others, including two Rangers personnel.

The explosion was so large that it smashed the windows of many nearby buildings in addition to destroying the Rangers’ smartphone, which was hit in the attack. In addition, a car and several motorcycles parked near the paramilitary force’s vehicle were destroyed.

A sizable police and ranger contingent arrived at the scene and cordoned off the area. The deceased and wounded were taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where Roshan Ali, the former, was named.

Two Rangers, Muhammad Hanif and Ejaz Ali, were among the wounded, as were civilians Yasir Hussain, Irfan Nasir, Hussain, Babu Khan, Sobar Hassan, Waqar Ali, Yousuf, Nadeem, Ghulam Ali, Akbar, Saleem Farooq, Irfan, and Mehboob.

According to the initial report from the bomb disposal team, the IED planted in a nearby motorcycle was exploded using a remote control device. It went off as the Rangers mobile moved through the field, containing four to five kilograms of explosives and ball bearings.

Two suspects were seen parking their motorcycle and boarding a rickshaw across the road on CCTV video from the explosion. The explosive is exploded as the Rangers car approaches the motorcycle. The video shows mayhem erupting on the busy highway, with onlookers running for cover.

The suspects were allegedly present when the bomb was exploded, according to investigators. The cops confirmed that the geo-fencing of the city will be completed.

As AIG Ghulam Nabi Memon arrived at the blast site several hours later, he said the inquiry had made considerable progress.

The sacrifices of the paramilitary force, army, and other law enforcement agencies in maintaining law and order in the city are highly valued by the Sindh government, he said. “Anti-state forces are seeking to destabilize the city’s peace, but these terrorists will be defeated.”

Imran Ismail, the governor of Sindh, was also alerted to the attack. “An explosion near a Rangers mobile in Karachi’s Orangi Town is causing considerable concern. It is critical that this incident be investigated right away. The hurt should be given medical attention. He tweeted, “We recognize their sacrifices for the restoration of peace in Karachi.”
