Funeral prayers offered for four victims of Lahore bomb attack
According to details, the funeral prayers were offered for the four deceased members from a family of eight people. The funeral prayers were offered in Sanghar. Due to the immense grief and shock from the tragic bomb blast that shook the country on Sunday, Khadro city remained deserted and shops were mostly closed.
On Sunday, a bomb blast took place in Lahore at the Gulshan-i-Iqbal park in the provincial capital of Punjab, killing more than seventy people and injuring scores. The park was crowded on account of the day being a Sunday and an Easter holiday as well. Many Christians who had showed up to celebrate Easter with their families in the park, were also killed in the attack.
A Joint Investigation Team has been formed to probe the incident and evidence has been collected from the crime scene. PM Nawaz addressed the nation on Monday and promised to hunt down terrorists responsible for the incident and bring them to book. Jamaat-ul-Ahrar accepted the responsibility for the attack.
