    Awami National Party (ANP) leader Haroon Bilour and three others were martyred and several others injured in a bomb attack targeting his rally in a congested neighbourhood of Peshawar shortly before midnight on Tuesday.

    The blast occurred near the vehicle of Bilour, son of the late ANP leader Bashir Bilour, in the Yakatoot area. The casualties were driven to the Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) where medics confirmed the death toll.

    Bashir Bilour was also martyred in a suicide bombing targeting his rally in the fabled Qissa Khawani bazaar of Peshawar in December2012. The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan had claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Haroon Bilour was approaching the rally organised in connection with his election campaign on Circular Road when the explosion took place.

    Express News reported that the ANP leader’s son Danial Bilour was also severely injured in the blast.

    Seven including MMA candidate injured in Bannu blast

    Last week, an election candidate of the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), Malik Sherein, and his six supporters were injured in a bomb blast in the southern Bannu district. The convoy of Sherein was attacked when it was passing through the Takhti Khel area in the PK-89 constituency as part of the party’s election campaign.

    The vehicle of the party’s leader was badly damaged in the attack. The injured were shifted to district headquarters hospital. Initial reports revealed the explosives were planted on a motorcycle which exploded in the path of the convoy.

    On Monday, the National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta) revealed that almost all the leading politicians, belonging to almost all mainstream political parties, are facing serious security threats in the backdrop of the July 25 general election.

    The officials said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, the Awami National Party’s (ANP) Afsandyar Wali, the Qaumi Watan Party’s (QWP) Aftab Sherpao and leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are under threat.

    The other politicians who are facing security threats include the Khyber Pakhtunkwa (K-P) former chief ministers Akram Durrani and Ameer Haider Hoti. Durrani belongs to the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam while Hoti belongs to the ANP.

    Talha Saeed, a son of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed who is contesting election on the platform of the Allah-o-Akbar Tehreek, is also named among those facing threats

    They already know the game plan.. The recent blabbering of NS and his daughter was to pressurize Army to retreat from their position of assisting ECP

    Maybe this time its not TTP, but someone who wants to destabilized the country before elections.. and to avenge the verdicts given by accountability courts?
