The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) held a special ceremony in connection with the anniversary of the Karsaz tragedy at the party secretariat in the federal capital.
According to the 24NewsHD TV channel, a large number of party leaders and workers participated in the event and paid tribute to the martyrs.
The participants also paid homage to the martyred leaders of the Pakistan People’s Party and raised slogans of Long Live Bhutto
Lawmen are still clueless about the Karsaz carnage perpetrators. Back-to-back bombings at the homecoming caravan of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto Shaheed 15 years ago claimed more than 180 lives and injured over 500 in Karachi. Every year on October 18, candles are burnt in memory of martyrs.
The first woman PM of a Muslim state and brave leader arrived in Karachi on October 18, 2007, at 1:45 PM after living in self-imposed exile for eight years. There was a large procession of people from all over the country to welcome her. It took them more than 10 hours to reach Karsaz from the Karachi airport
The dead bodies and the injured were shifted to different hospitals in the provincial capital. Two cases were registered in the police station concerned.
The blast site was also washed away that night, causing the loss of several important pieces of evidence. Police detained various people but they were also released due to a lack of evidence.
Reportedly, two key witnesses in the case were also killed – one in a target killing hit and the other in a bomb attack. DSP Nawaz Ranjha, the investigation officer, was too killed.
