Karsaz bomb attack

On December 18, 2007, the procession carrying Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, who was returning after an 8 year self imposed exile was bombed near Karsaz Karachi, killing over 180 innocent citizens and injuring 500. Benazir miraculously escaped this attack but fell victim to another fatal attempt on her life after she had just delivered a speech at Rawalpindi on 27 December 2007. Both these crimes took place when Musharraf junta was in power. Surprisingly within hours of both these two bombing incidents, the crime scene was washed and all possible traces of essential forensic evidence lost.
In sharp contrast when Musharraf himself had two unfortunate assassination attempts in December 2003, the crime scene was barricaded for almost a week and every square millimetre was thoroughly searched. This raises serious doubts in minds of people who have not forgotten 12 May 2007 massacre in Karachi by MQM and Musharraf rejoicing this brutality by raising his fists in Islamabad terming it as show of his power.
