Law enforcement agencies have arrested a suspect who parked a car bomb in Lahore’s Johar Town on June 23, it emerged Monday.

At least three people, including a policeman, were killed and over 20 injured in the attack near Jamaat-ud-Da’wa leader Hafiz Saeed’s residence.

The law enforcers arrested the suspect, Eid Gul, in Rawalpindi, according to investigation sources.

Peter Paul David, another suspect currently in police custody, bought the vehicle in Gujranwala a week before the blast. David handed over the car to Gul.

The vehicle entered Lahore at 9:16am and it was parked outside a house in Johar Town at 10:28am. It exploded moments later.

David told investigators that he bought the vehicle for Rs950,000. The suspect paid Rs50,000 upfront while the rest of the amount was paid by his accomplice, Zia Khan.

The suspects had placed explosives inside the CNG cylinder of the car, the sources said. The law enforcers are still looking for the one who drove the vehicle to Lahore.

The roads leading to the crime scene have been reopened for residents after four days.
