Shiite News reported that the CCPO Rawalpindi Akhtar Umar Lalika, said the blast caused by a suicide bomber left 5

including himself dead.

The bomber reached near Imam Bargah on a motorcycle and was stopped at the first police check post for a physical search where he blew himself up.

The first cordon, manned by police officials and supervised by the area SHO himself, was located 30 feet from the Imam bargah. There is at least one other check post where visitors are physically searched before being allowed to enter the building.

Martyrs were identified as Sub-inspector Amanat Ali of the Airport Police Station, Hassan Abbas, Ghulam Shabbir and Waseem Zaidi. At least 16 persons including SHO Rab Nawaz and 7 police officials were injured, six critically.

The critically injured have been transferred to the Benazir Bhutto hospital for treatment. Three bodies were also brought to the hospital. Coffin of the martyr Waseem, Zaidi is being taken to Karachi where his funeral will take place on Wednesday.

Police and other security agencies have cordoned off the area and are collecting evidence. The bomb disposal squad has also reached the site and is collecting evidence.
The blast damaged at least two cars and almost a dozen motorcycles and also caused damage to nearby buildings.

The Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen, Shia Ulema Council and Tehrik-e-Nifaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafaria condemned the suicide attack. They demanded stern action against the Yazidi nasbi takfiri terrorists of outlawed Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahaba. They also denounced the Punjab government for its failure to protect the Shia Muslims against terrorist attacks.

Gracy Line is located in a very sensitive part of Rawalpindi, situated between military residential buildings, the Benazir airport and Chaklala air base.
