At least eight people were killed in a suicide car bomb attack targeting a senior police official in the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) area of Karachi on Monday

The blast occurred outside the house of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Crime Investigation Department (CID) Chaudhry Aslam. The house, nearby buildings and vehicles in the area were severely damaged after the blast.
Pakistan’s Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying Aslam had arrested and killed many of its fighters.
“We will attack other police officials as well who are taking action against our people,” Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.
He went on to name five Karachi police officials on the Taliban hit list.
Aslam heads the counter-terrorism unit of the Crime Investigation Department in Karachi, investigating militant cells in the city.
Deputy Inspector General (DIG) South Commander Shaukat said a double-cabin vehicle loaded with explosives had rammed into the gate of the house. He said the dead included six guards, a woman and a child.
Inspector General of Police (IG) Sindh Wajid Ali Durrani said that 300kg explosive material had been used in the attack.

One the same day, a school teacher and her son were killed in the suicide bomb attack which took place outside the residence of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Crime Investigation Department (CID) Chaudhry Aslam on Monday.
Heartbreaking.
