KARACHI: The Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) on Thursday defused a remote-controlled bomb recovered from the Jamia Binoria seminary in Karachi’s Site area, DawnNews reported.
A chit of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan was attached with the bomb which claimed that the bomb was a gift from the proscribed organisation.
Police sources said that cut screws were used in the making of the bomb which weighed 500 grams and that the remote-controlled bomb appeared to have been manufactured by a professional.
Sources added that large scale devastation would have taken place if the bomb had exploded.
Samples of the explosive material were sent to a lab for further testing.
