Islamabad- Following Wednesday’s powerful blast killing 25 and injuring several more, the fruit market opened today, after a day of mourning.
Although the usual trading activities have started, the fruit and vegetable market remained overcast as the laborers and traders were still shocked. The federal government has announced a compensation of Rs 500,000 to the heirs of the deceased and Rs 75,000 to the injured.
Outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) condemned the killing of innocent civilians and the United Balochistan Army accepted the responsibility. However, the interior ministry dismissed the claim and suggested it was linked to someone else.
