SHIKARPUR: At least 11 people, including two policemen, were injured in a suicide blast during Eid prayers in Shikarpur’s Khanpur tehsil on Tuesday. Police also foiled a separate suicide blast at an imambargah in the tehsil.

Police sources said four suicide attackers infiltrated Khanpur during Eid prayers.

Two attackers targeted an Eid prayer ground where one attacker blew himself up, injuring 11 people, three of whom were policemen. The other attacker fled, police sources said.

Two other attackers targeted an imambargah but were stopped by police at the entrance on account of appearing suspicious. As the attackers attempted to flee, one was gunned down by a cop, whereas the other was arrested.

Those injured in the blast have been admitted to hospitals in Shikarpur for treatment.
