The TV channels are reporting that there might be causalities and police has still yet to reach the location of incident. Some are saying that the cause of blast is gas cylinder and some are saying that it’s forces operation and some are saying that it’s just yet another terrorist attack. Some are saying that some explosives was inside which as blasted and there is no certain news coming out of it so confusion is everywhere, even in the media.
He was on his way to Gujranwala to file a bail plea in a case when the CTD detained him. Hafiz Saeed had many cases registered against him in several police stations. A spokesman for the CTD said Hafiz Saeed has been sent on judicial remand after being presented in an Anti-Terrorism Court. He confirmed that Saeed was going to Gujranwala to get pre-arrest bail at the time of his arrest. He said a case against Hafiz Saeed was registered under Anti-Terrorism act and he would be produced before the court shortly after challan is prepared.
It was not blast on Hafiz house, it was just gas pipeline blast in Johar town. So all good.
