Police release relatives of Lahore blast victim Yousuf


Police have released the relatives of Muhammad Yousuf, killed in Lahore suicide attack which claimed lives of over 70 people including women and children.

Initially Yousuf, son of Ghulam Farid, a resident of district Muzzafargarh, was suspected as a suicide bomber and police had arrested six of his relatives including three brothers.

The investigators had established the identity of Yousuf with the help of an identity card they found at the crime scene, claiming that the attack was carried out by Yousuf.

However, after release of photo of the suicide bomber by proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s Jamaatul Ahrar group it was established Yousuf was among the victims of the blast.

The terrorist group on Monday released a photo of the bomber on social media and identified him as Salahuddin Khurasani, giving a new twist to the investigation into the deadly bombing.
