Suicide attack at the political rally of Siraj Raisani on Friday martyred over 125 people and injured more than 150, in one of the deadliest attacks in the country’s history.

According to reports, the suicide attacker arrived in Chaghai from Afghanistan two days back. The alleged facilitators provided residence to the suicide bomber for a brief stay.

The suicide attacker was reportedly sitting in the first row of the public gathering. Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Commander of Southern Command Lt General Asim Saleem Bajwa attended the funeral prayers of Raisani in Quetta. Later, Raisani was laid to rest in his ancestral graveyard in Kanak, Mastung.
