A 35-year-old Pakistani journalist was killed in an attack claimed to have been carried out by the banned Balochistan Liberation Army.
No one immediately took responsibility for the attack Saturday in Jalalabad but it is to be noted that the increasingly violent Islamic State group affiliate is headquartered in eastern Afghanistan.
Bombs exploded outside the Barrackpore MP's Bhatpara house twice this month, first on September 8 and then on September 15.
The Police have registered a case and investigation is currently on to nab those involved in carrying out the blast.
In a statement issued late Saturday, Afghanistan's IS affiliate said its operatives blew up two minivans carrying “disbeliever Shiites” using sticky bombs.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Previous deadly attacks on Kabul university in November last year were claimed by the Islamic State group.
commissioner SH Panchapakesan also urged the government to give one member of the victim’s family a job in government service or with public sector entities.
Sebastian had issues with the victim selling coffins and had obstructed the sales as the shop was close to his house.
The four were arrested after buying acetone, a highly flammable liquid that can be used to make bombs, sources said.
