That's sad. So close to my former home. This is the 3rd blast at Pir Wadhai I believe. One was a cylinder fire/explosion I think. It is a transportation hub, with lots of bus stations, Daewoo station was there as well. Don't know if they moved or not. There's also a lot of freight truck traffic that travels through this area and from truck/bus stations at IJP road.1 dead, 7 injured in Rawalpindi blast

A man was killed and seven other people injured in an explosion outside a grocery store at Rawalpindi's Pir Wadhai bus station on Friday, officials said.
The attack was carried out using an improvised explosive device with ball bearings and containing one kilogramme of explosive material, according to police officials. The device, fitted with a timer, was placed outside a grocery store where the rickshaw was parked. The explosion occurred as the rickshaw driver, Bilal, 26, was drinking tea at a hotel adjacent to the store. The driver too was injured in the explosion.
According to city police spokesperson, Sub-Inspector Sajjadul Hassan, the injured were admitted to Holy Family Hospital, where one of them, later identified as Muhammad Afzal Khan, succumbed to his injuries.
Hassan said the possibility of terrorism could not be ruled out and the case has been handed over to the Counter-Terrorism department (CTD) where the FIR will also be registered. Special police teams will further aid the CTD in the investigation.
Hassan said that the nature of the blast was similar to previous blasts in the past year. This is the third such incident to have taken place in Rawalpindi this year.
On March 13, seven people were injured, one of them critically, when an explosive device was detonated in the busy Saddar Bazaar. A similar incident was reported on June 12, when one person was killed while 12 others injured in an explosion in the same vicinity.
don't bring hindus in your own dirty affairs, all terrorist activities are carried out by your own citizens who sadly happen to be Muslims .no pakistani or indian hindu ever involved in any terrorism.They (hinduvtas) are desperate. Biden will take the White House next month, sign the Peace Deal in Afghanistan and then it would the Afghan-Pukhtun Mujahideen who will hunt down hinduvtas in Afghanistan. Even Iran is becoming friendlier toward Pakistan. As peace arrives in Afghanistan, then it's just a matter of squeezing out these hinduvtas from Central Asia. Once the region West of Pakistan is cleansed of hinduvtas, it would be up to india, if they would come to terms with Pakistan and dislodge hinduvtas from power. Kashmir's liberation can be worked out through dialogue with sensible indians who won't be coerced by the israelis like the hinduvtas have.
The terrorism that these hinduvtas are spreading, is one day going to bite back and finish them off once and for all. This particularly the reason why it is so important that Pakistan secures its borders. With the Najdi-Emaraat now buddy-buddy with the zionist-state, it is crucial that Pakistan remains aware of the threats that will emerge from this front (Najdi-UAE) by the zionist-state. Securing borders is one thing, covert ops, as israelis have done in the past in Lebanon. Which is why now, more than ever, Pakistan must establish peace in Afghanistan and route the hinduvtas out of the region altogether.
Mark my words, the hinduvtas will now be working ever more closely with the zionist-state to destabilize the region.
we attack only armed forces . you know who are the people who slit throat and do suicide bombings .Didn't the people of India vote in Modi with a massive majority? And didn't Modi's election campaign revolve around attacking Pakistan and oppressing Kashmir?
shut up retarded terrorist, stop your own terrorist brothers who kill people by slitting throats and kill innocent people in suicide bombings .F off Endian terrorist scum. You are behind every terrorist act in Pakistan and you will reap what you sow.
rest in peace to the dead,إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
those who attacked were all your brother muslims and pakistani . no indian or hindu killed you .How many civillians were killed in the PSX attack, APS attack, Karachi bombings, by BRAS, or by Altaf Hussain?
Just like your army, you are scared of innocent civillians on the level that you equate them to trained soldiers.
