HYDERABAD: Today, on the tenth anniversary of the Karsaz blast (that was meant to kill former PM Benazir Bhutto), cynics go haywire wondering why – despite three inquiry committees – the investigators are still clueless!

On 18th of October a decade ago, when former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was leading a homecoming procession from Airport towards Bilawal House in Clifton, two bombs exploded at Karsaz near her vehicle.

Though Benazir Bhutto escaped the assassination attempts unscathed, many of her followers lost their lives on that day.

Observing the tenth anniversary of the incident PPPP is organizing a huge public gathering here today that will be addressed by PPPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Sources have informed that over 40,000 chairs have been placed at site of the gathering.
