KARACHI: Unknown armed assailants on Friday set alight an office of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in Karachi's Moach Goth area.
According to initial reports, armed assailants on four motorcycles came to the area where PPP's camp office had been set up to facilitate local residents ahead of its public gathering at Quaid's mausoleum on Saturday (tomorrow).
The attackers resorted to unprovoked aerial firing after setting the PPP camp office on fire, causing panic and terror in the area.
In the fire, the camp office was fully burnt with flags, pamphlets and other material for the rally turned to ashes.
Today's attack comes a day before PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari prepares to address a rally at a ground close to the mausoleum of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah in the provincial capital tomorrow.
The ruling party in Sindh expects the rally under its young chairman Bilawal to mobilise its workers in Karachi and other parts of the province.
