KARACHI - Investigation into the assassination of SP Chaudhry Aslam Khan on Monday revealed that the attackers had a second vehicle with explosives as backup, according to a report.
Aslam and his two guards were killed on January 9 when a suicide bomber – later identified as Naeemullah – drove an explosives-laden vehicle into his car on Lyari Expressway, in Karachi's Essa Nagri neighbourhood.
Investigation officers said the assailants had brought two vehicles to the blast site to ensure the target was achieved. Eyewitnesses said they had seen two vans at the toll booth on the expressway.
CID SSP Niaz Khoso said the investigation officers were waiting for the report on DNA samples collected from the crime scene and that around 15 people were being interrogated.
