Security agencies picked up a man from the hostel of the Punjab University on Wednesday, purportedly in connection with the Karachi University (KU) suicide blast case. Bebgar Imdad, a student of the seventh semester of English Literature in Numl, Islamabad, and a native of Kech, was visiting his relative in Hostel No 7.
Security forces killed four terrorists who attempted to storm the Pakistan Stock Exchange compound in Karachi in a gun and grenade attack on Monday morning. One sub-inspector and two security guards were martyred in the attack. Seven people, including three police officials, have also been injured. The attack has been attributed to the Balochistan Liberation Army outfit.
The US State Department has confirmed the decision to declare the armed separatist group, Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), as a global terrorist organisation, hoping the move will help minimise its existence. With this classification, it is a crime for anyone in the United States to assist the militants and any US assets they may have will now be frozen.
