January 30, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
On Monday afternoon, a mosque bomb in Peshawar’s Police Lines neighborhood injured at least 90 people, according to emergency personnel.
The Lady Reading Hospital’s (LRC) spokeswoman, Mohammad Asim, told Reuters that the hospital was still receiving injured patients, some of whom were in severe condition.
According to Asim, the area has been totally blocked off, and only ambulances are permitted access.
A part of the structure had fallen, and numerous people were reportedly under it, according to police officer Sikandar Khan.
According to the bomb location, the explosion happened at about 1:40 pm, just as Zuhr prayers were being said. He said that both army and police officials were present inside the mosque.
People were shown crowding around the mosque’s crumbled wall on television broadcasts.
It is now unknown if a bomb was intentionally placed inside the mosque or if a suicide strike occurred.
On the other side, the Red Zone access routes have been closed by the police.
Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, vehemently denounced the “terrorist suicide attack” in Peshawar and offered his condolences to the victims’ families in a tweet following the report of the explosion.
He continued, “It is essential that we strengthen our information collection and adequately equip our police forces to face the evolving threat of terrorism.
The previous significant event of this kind occurred in Peshawar last year, when a suicide bomber detonated himself inside a Shia mosque in the city’s Kocha Risaldar neighborhood, killing 63 people.
