A day earlier, a grenade attack on Rangers personnel injured a soldier, which was rumoured to be linked with the IS.

The pro-IS wall chalking has appeared at a time when people from different parts of the country are reaching Larkana in large numbers to observe the seventh death anniversary of former Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman and the country's assassinated premier Benazir Bhutto.
