Multiple blasts in Sindh kills one, injures another


A series of low intensity blasts rocked multiple cities of Sindh on Tuesday evening, killing at least one person and injuring another. An explosion, described as a cracker blast, killed one person at Hyder square in Hyderabad as another cracker targeted a police picket near Qasimabad. The deceased has been identified as Muhammad Tufail. Police officials said that they had found a dead body near one of the blast sites and that the deceased suffered a fatality as a result of a wound inflicted to his head. He, however, did not comment whether the body was connected to the blasts. The injured person has been identified as Haroon Abdullah. A police official said such activities were expected on the eve of a strike called by nationalist parties in Sindh. There were also reports of four similar explosions from Dadu, however these could not be independently confirmed.
