Peshawar police defuse IED planted near seminary


PESHAWAR: The city police on Saturday foiled a terrorism bid by defusing an improvised explosive device (IED) that had been planted near a local seminary, ostensibly to target security personnel and students.
A senior police official said that the IED, weighing up to one kilogramme, was planted underneath a pile of garbage by the wall of the seminary. The Bomb Disposal Unit (BDU) was called in to defuse the device, he added.
In July this year, security forces had defused another IED planted by the roadside at Aman Chowk, Dalazak Road within the jurisdiction of Paharipura police station.
The target of the IED, a police official had said, was a police mobile, but luckily, it was spotted in time and defused.
