Breaking News Bomb Blast On Lahore Railway Station

A bomb went off in the Lahore Railway station and resulted in the death of a porter and a policeman and another 58 are seriously injured and in hospital.

The news has been reported by The Dawn of 25th of April 2012.

Both President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani have expressed sorrow and grief over the attack – monetary compensations have been announced for the families of the dead and all those who have been injured in the blast.

The 5-Kg bomb was apparently in the waiting lounge of the Business Express located between platforms one and two.

The Luxury Business Express train to Karachi is a new service launched two months ago which offers first-class travel between Pakistan’s two biggest cities.

The injured have been moved to nearby hospitals like the Ganga Ram, Mayo and Services hospitals and five of the wounded are reported to be in a critical condition.

Consequent to this blast, the security measures have been strengthened in all railway stations of major cities including Peshawar, Quetta and Karachi.
