Suicide bomber, aide killed in premature detonation of bomb-vest in Pak
Peshawar, Dec. 2 (ANI): A suicide bomber and his helper were killed when his suicide vest went off prematurely in near Yaktot in Pakistan late on Saturday night.
"The bomber was riding a bike and perhaps his jacket went off accidently which left him dead on the spot and also destroyed the motorbike," The Express Tribune quoted sub-inspector Sartaj Khan of the Wazir Bagh police post, as saying.
"We don't know about the target and what the suicide bomber and his helper were doing in the cold night at the back of a deserted petrol pump," he added.
Khan said they called in the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) to inspect the site of the explosion as well as the body parts of the suicide bomber.
The powerful explosion had sent a shock wave of fear across the city. The place of the explosion was located after a good 30 minutes search by the police along the Ring Road.(ANI)
