The Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) has defused a bomb planted on a motorcycle near Jheel Park on Karachi’s Tariq Road.
According to the police, the bomb weighing 2kg was placed in a tool box of a motorbike.
The Counter-Terrorism Department has arrested a suspect from the spot. In its report, the BDS said the bomb of this size could harm people and properties within a 20-metre radius.
Ghulam Mustafa Arain, the BDS in-charge, told reporters that dynamite, RDX and other explosive materials were mixed to make the “non-electric” explosive device.
The bomb was sent to a laboratory for forensic examination, he added.
