Islamabad, Mon, 19 Nov 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Nov. 19 (ANI): Former Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Qazi Hussain Ahmad had a narrow escape after a female suicide bomber detonated her suicide vest soon after his convoy passed through the Ghaiba Khwar area in Haleemzai tehsil.

According to Political Administration Official, Shamsul Islam, the blast occurred at 11:15 am and injured three people, reports The Express Tribune.

Islam said that Ahmad was on his way to Haleemzai tehsil to address party activists and administer the oath from the new inductees of the party.

"He remained safe in the explosion," the official said, adding that after the explosion, security forces along with paramilitary troops reached the site and cordoned off the area.

Medical Superintendent Dr Jehangir at Ghalanai Headquarters Hospital said the three injured persons are now in stable condition.

Earlier in October, eight people, including police personnel, were injured in two explosions in Swabi district, when Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti's motorcade was passing through Mall Road, a kilometre away from the city of Swabi.

Hoti was on his way to inaugurate the Swabi-Jehangira Road, when a stationary motorcycle exploded moments after the convoy sped past. (ANI)
