Pakistan: Second suspect arrested in Karachi University blast


The Pakistan Police has arrested a second suspect in connection with the Karachi University blast, news agency ANI reported, citing local media reports from last week.

The Express Tribune said Bebgar Imdad, a student, was arrested and transferred to an undisclosed location. Imdad’s arrest follows the arrest of Habitan Bashir Baloch, husband of suicide bomber Shari Baloch, in whose attack four people, including three Chinese nationals, were killed.

The Express Tribune described Imdad as the “alleged mastermind” of the attack and was traced through a mobile phone link. The report also said that Imdad is a student of the National University of Modern Languages in Islamabad and had opposed the arrest.

Also last week, the husband of assailant Shari Baloch, Habitan Bashir Baloch, was arrested, which local media outlet ARY News reported as the first in the case.

Investigators also found links between some of his relatives and the Baloch Students’ Organization (BSO), which claimed responsibility for the attack, which has been banned by the Pakistan government. Four people were killed in a suicide bombing on the campus of Karachi University on 26 April.

The explosion occurred when a van rammed into the gates of the university’s Chinese language learning center – the Confucius Institute. The attack has been condemned by the global community, including the UN Security Council, which has called it “heinous and cowardly”.

India also condemned the attack but, in a warning, called on all countries to take a ‘indifferent position against terrorism’. Pakistan has also come under pressure from China.

The official daily Global Times said, “We strongly demand that the Pakistani side do more to protect Chinese institutions, projects and personnel in Pakistan, and to explain to organizations that attempt to hurt the Chinese will be punished.” Will only ruin himself.”
