QUETTA: A photo has been released of the alleged suicide bomber who blew himself up on Gulistan Road in Quetta on June 23 killing at least 15 people.

According to the police, the photo has been released so that people could help the police in their investigation if they recognise the alleged bomber. Police have promised to not only reward the person who would give information on the alleged bomber, whose photo has been released but will also keep their identity secret.

This would help in arresting facilitators of the alleged bomber, the police said.

The bombing took place near the office of the inspector general of police Balochistan on Gulistan Road.

The Balochistan government spokesperson, Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar, said the suspected bomber, likely travelling in Toyota Corolla, tried to break a security perimeter to target police office situated close by, but blew up after policemen standing guard at the location attempted to stop him.

Security officials also confirmed that the blast was the result of a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device which exploded after the ‘suspicious’ driver was spotted by policemen.

Addressing the media earlier, Quetta DIG Abdul Razzaq Cheema said they were examining CCTV footage to determine further details about the incident.
