QUETTA: Interior Minister Rehman Malik said Thursday that a plot to target ministers and key figures with perfume bombs has been foiled, DawnNews reported.

“Terrorists had devised a perfume bottle like bombs as gifts to target ministers and key political figures in the month of Ramazan,” said Malik in his report.

Malik prepared a report after receiving intel from the spy agencies and sent it to President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, DG ISI Shuja Pasha, DG MI and to all four provincial chief ministers along with 21 other key figures.
