ATTOCK: A 20-kilogram bomb that was recovered from a suitcase in a coach of Awam Express standing at the city’s railway station, has been defused in Wednesday’s wee hours.

Before long, Railways and city police put a security cordon around the station and called in the bomb disposal squad, which arrived but two hours late.
