Attacker Shari Baloch’s residences raided in Karachi


Police on Thursday claimed to have raided at least three places where Karachi University suicide bomber Shari Baloch and her family stayed before the deadly attack.

According to police and investigation agencies, the attacker and her husband rented two apartments in Gulistan-e-Jauhar and Delhi Colony which they seldom visited while her father had a house in his name in Scheme 33 which the family vacated days before the attack.

Neighbours says Shari Baloch seldom visited the flat in Gulistan-e-Jauhar which she rented about four years ago and never spoke to neighbours or anyone else in the apartment building. They told police that Shari Baloch’s family visited the flat in a car bearing a government registration plate.

The second place, owned by her father, was raided by law enforcement agencies and was sealed after recovery of a number of laptops and documents. Police say this was their primary residence as most of their belongings were found here. INP
