PESHAWAR: A bomb blast occurred on Monday targeting an election office of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in Charsadda’s Shabqadar Mirzai area on Monday, DawnNews reported.
According to sources, a man was injured in a blast and the party’s office was completely destroyed.
Police cordoned off the area and started an investigation.
Three parties — PPP, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Awami National Party (ANP) – have vowed to fight terror and have braved attacks on them by the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in their campaign to contest the coming elections.
The May 11 polls will witness the first democratic transition of power in Pakistan whose democratic history is plagued with military’s interventions.
