Imran Khan blames Karachi attack on intelligence failure


Lahore: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday condemned the terrorist attack on the Karachi Police Office (KPO).

Taking to Twitter, he said: “Once again our brave police were targeted”. He pointed out that the sudden spike in terrorism, especially in the midst of urban centres, “reflects a failure of intelligence & the State’s lack of a clear proactive anti-terrorism policy”.

His comments came after a group of terrorists attacked the police headquarters in Pakistan’s southern port city. Four people — a Ranger deputy inspector, a police officer and two civilians — were killed in the attack. The three terrorists were also killed in an operation launched by rangers and police to eliminate them.

A spokesman for the Sindh police said one of the terrorists was killed when his jacket exploded and two others were killed in a shootout with security officials. The terrorist attack on the police headquarters in Karachi comes just weeks after a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a mosque at a police station in Peshawar. The attackers claimed the lives of more than 100 people.
