The Sindh High Court on Friday overturned the death sentences issued to two men suspected of being involved in a bombing outside the Dar-i-Abbas Imambargah in the Federal Capital area of Karachi’s Liaquatabad No. 4 neighbourhood.

The anti-terror court had earlier sentenced both men to death for their involvement in the attack. A teenager, identified as 13-year-old Faraz Bashir, had been killed on the spot in the attack while around 20 people were injured. “According to initial investigations, it was a cracker blast,” the then-SP Liaquatabad had described the nature of the attack. Former Additional IG Mushtaq Mehr had at the time said that per witnesses two men on a motorbike were involved in the attack.

“Two people riding a motorcycle threw the grenade and sped away.”
