Last Updated at: 2 month(s) ago
Hyderabad: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) on Wednesday will hold a public gathering in Sindh’s Hyderabad city to mark the 10th anniversary of Karachi’s Karsaz bombing incident which claimed over 150 lives.

According to details, strict measures have been taken to avoid any untoward situation. All arrangements have been finalized to hold a public rally at Hatri Hyderabad bypass.

Forty-thousand seats have been placed at the venue to host the attendees, besides 5000 police personnel have been deployed in and around the public meeting venue.

Bullet-proof container in which former PPP Chairperson was en route to Quaid-e-Azam monument.

The party chairman – Bilawal Bhutto Zardari – will also address the PPP workers and supporters to pay rich tribute to the party martyrs of the Karsaz blast.

It is apropos to highlight here that the deadly suicide blast aimed at a motorcade carrying former party chairperson Benazir Bhutto took place on Karsaz Road ten years ago today, October 18, 2007.

The attack was carried out at a time when former party chairperson Bhutto returned to Pakistan after ending her nine-year self imposed exile. She was en route to Quaid-e-Azam monument to address a public gathering from Karachi International Airport via Karsaz Road when two back-to-back explosions occurred in front of the bullet-proof truck carrying late Bhutto.

Bhutto remained unhurt in the blasts. However, the incident claimed over 150 lives as a large number of people took to roads to welcome late Bhutto on her arrival in Karachi after a prolonged self exile.
