KARACHI: Three grenade attacks were carried out on Friday in Karachi within just two hours, injuring two children, Samaa reported.

According to our correspondent, the first attack was carried out on Mubina Town police station where unknown bikers hurled a hand grenade at the building around 9:20am.

Police said the grenade landed inside the police station, partially damaging a police vehicle. Official said no policeman was injured.

Meanwhile, Samaa obtained CCTV video of the attack showing two bike riders hurling the grenade before fleeing from the scene.

A search operation was underway in the area to track down the miscreants, police claimed.

In the second attack, miscreants threw a ‘ball bomb’ outside Apwa government college in Karimabad area. The low-intensity blast caused no casualties.

Both the attacks occurred within just one hour.

Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) said it was a 250-gram ‘ball bomb’. Ball bearings used in the locally-made bomb were also collected from the scene.

The third attack was reported in North Nazimabad area outside a private school. Police said two schoolchildren were wounded.

Separately, Ranges carried out a search operation this morning in Nazimabad area near Gujjar Nullah, arresting at least five suspects. - Samaa
