Police and residents foiled the bid of the terrorists to hit Shia population in Karachi at night on the anniversary of Chehlum of Imam Hussain (AS) on Tuesday.
Shiite News Correspondent reported here that the terrorists planted explosive materials in a car that was parked along the residential Federal B Area Block 20. The residents smelt a rat behind unclaimed car in their area. They informed the police that reached the spot on time and finally the bomb disposal squad was called in.
The terrorists plotted to explode the car by explosive materials that would also cause a CNG cylinder blast to maximize the casualties.
Shia Muslims were taking out a procession to bud farewell to Chehlum anniversary and many others were returning from the main mourning procession that was culminated at Hussainiah Iranian Kharadar.
However, timely action failed the terrorists bid to hit innocent Shiites in Shia majority areas like they did before the start of Moharram.
