What we see is that our law enforcement agencies are the target. You can see our police officials are also wounded. Police have received 65 threat alerts recently. We are investigating whether the explosives were detonated remotely or by a suicide bomber. If not for the police checkpoint, the car could have reached Saeed’s house. We would urge the citizens and the media to no “speculate”. These attacks are usually carried out by countries that want to harm Pakistan and its progress. We have peace in our country because of our intelligence agencies.”
