Shikarpur shrine blast: Syed Hajan Shah succumbs to injuries


Gaddi nasheen (spiritual heir) of Dargah Ghulam Shah Ghazi Syed Hajan Shah, who was seriously injured in an attack on the shrine in the village of Maari near Shikarpur on February 25 this year, succumbed to his wounds on Monday, local media reported.
Reports said business activity and other social activities came to a halt in the town after the news of his death became public.
Sources said angry mobs came out on streets, protesting against the culprits behind the devastating attack that killed at least three and injured dozens.
Syed Hajan Shah along with two of his children, and three women had received serious injuries in the blast.
According to Larkana DIG Abdul Khaliq Shaikh, an unidentified man talking on a mobile phone had placed a bag in the shrine. There was a blast soon after he left the area, he said.
Eyewitnesses said the man had placed the bag in the hall where the gaddi nasheen and his followers were sitting.
Earlier on February 20, the motorcade of spiritual leader Syed Ghulam Hussain Shah Buhkari was also attacked near Jacobabad. His grandson Syed Shafique Shah was killed and more than eight people were injured in the attack.
