Data Darbar Blast: Security forces arrest 4 suspects in Lahore raid

LAHORE: Security forces have arrested four suspects in a raid on a house in Lahore’s Garhi Shahu area in connection with the Data Darbar blast.

Twelve individuals lost their lives in the suicide bombing targeting an Elite Force van deployed outside the shrine.

Agencies investigating the bombing said they had identified the motorcycle rickshaw used to transport the suspected bomber to the shrine.

The suspect took the rickshaw from near the railway station. Video footage obtained by the agencies reportedly shows that the rickshaw driver approached the bomber as the latter approached from Garhi Shahu.

Meanwhile, law enforcement agencies said they had shifted their focus to three major terrorist networks of the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Punjab to uncover handlers/facilitators of the attack.

A less known terror outfit Hizbul Ahrar had claimed responsibility for the attack. The group is a splinter of Jamaatul Ahrar headed by Muqarram Shah from Afghanistan.

It is said Hizbul Ahrar separated from Jamaatul Ahrar due to some internal rifts. It started operating separately to target primarily the law enforcement agencies in various parts of Pakistan.
