Meanwhile, bomb disposal squad on Sunday defused a bomb planted here in Orangi Town.
Some miscreants planted the bomb in an oil container outside Rabbani Masjid Orangi Town within the premises of Pirabad Police Station. The bomb was discovered when some people going back to their homes after offering Fajar prayer noticed the suspicious material and a cell phone attached with an oil container.
