Military takes over Imambargah investigation



The caretaker of an imambargah, Zain Shah, fears a third suicide attack on the holy place, thus military has intervened and taken over the investigations.

“We have not received any direct threats from anyone,” he told a local media outlet.

The attack first happened on February 18, when a suicide attacker blew himself outside the bargah Qasr i Sakina, killing two people and injuring several others.

The damage could have been a lot worse had the bomber managed to make his way inside, but he was stopped by the two guards who lost their lives but averted a greater tragedy.

The imambargah is located at the junction of the Islamabad Expressway and Kuri road in Shakrial.
