MARDAN: A bomb blast near the house of a prominent industrialist in the Par Hoti area of Mardan left one person dead and two others injured on Friday.

The Par Hoti Police station SHO Nihar Ali told Dawn.com that the explosives were planted near the front gate of the house of Samiur Rehman, who is also a relative of former Awami National Party MNA, Haji Nasimur Rehman.

The explosion killed one security guard on the spot, while two others were injured.

Bomb disposal squad (BDS) official Faqir Taj said that about two to three kilograms of explosive material had been used to carry in the attack which damaged the front gate of the house.

The home-made explosive device, fixed in tin, was placed near the guard room on the main gate which was destroyed along with a wall.
