He prayed for the departed soul of the policeman killed in the attack and also directed the concerned authorities to ensure the provision of best medical treatment to the injured.

The prime minister has directed the Interior Minister Rehman Malik to immediately submit a report regarding this abhorrent act of terrorism.
