Four BDS men killed in Peshawar bomb blast

17 December, 2013

PESHAWAR: Four officials of the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) were killed on Monday in a remote-controlled blast in the southern periphery of the city.

The blast took place near a BDS vehicle in Badhabar area of Peshawar, where militants come across from Khyber Agency to attack police and anti-Taliban elders. A Badhabar Police Station official said the BDS officials were on their way to defuse a bomb when the bomb exploded. An injured BDS official was taken to the Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) for treatment, according to Rescue 1122.

A spokesman for the LRH said in a press statement that three dead bodies were brought to the hospital, while the lone injured succumbed to his injuries. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police chief Nasir Khan Durrani hailed the slain BDS men. "Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, particularly Peshawar, being at the front line, has become very sensitive, where four to five IEDs (improvised explosive devices) are being defused on a daily basis," he said.

According to reports, Abdul Haq, 43, who had defused more than 60 bombs in his career. "He was on his way to defuse a bomb when his vehicle was hit by another bomb. Abdul Haq and a police driver were killed on spot," Najeebur Rehman, a senior police official, told AFP.
