KARACHI: The funeral prayer of senior police official Chaudhry Aslam Khan, who was killed on Thursday in a powerful explosion in Karachi, were offered on Friday.

Strict security arrangements were in place around the Aziz Bhatti police headquarter where the prayer was offered.

Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Corps Commander Karachi Lieutenant General Muhammad Ijaz Chaudhry, provincial minister Sharjeel Inam Memon and high-ranking police officials were present during the prayer.

Moreover, the police had prepared the preliminary report of the investigation into the blast and the senior officer's autopsy report had also been prepared.

Aslam, who had survived numerous assassination attempts in the past, died when the bomb targeted his convoy on the Lyari Expressway. Two police guards also lost their lives while five cops were injured in the attack near Essa Nagri area.

The attack on Aslam came hours after his team shot dead three suspected militants in an alleged encounter in a militancy-infested locality of Karachi's Manghopir.

The blast was so powerful that it hurled Aslam's bullet-proof vehicle into the air. The vehicle landed on another track of the road.

The Mohmand agency chapter of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack.
