Tarar Khal blast: 4 security men dead, 10 hur

RAWLA KOT, Jan 6 : At least four people were killed and 10 others injured in a blast in Fauji Field Hospital situated in Tarar Khal area of Palandari district of Azad Kashmir, on Wednesday.

The blast occurred near a residential barrack of Military Dispensary Hospital at 0650am, injuring at least 14 people, who were rushed to CMH Rawla Kot. However, four of them succumbed to injuries.

Officials said the blast occurred near a laundry of Tarar Khal military barracks.The security forces put security cordon around the area after the blast and stopped movement of all kinds.

Azad Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Hyder, reacting on the blast, said the attack on the Army in Azad Kashmir is unacceptable, adding the attackers are implementing the agenda put up by India .

Raja Farooq Hyder said the attackers are not human beings, instead they are mice, as they hide themselves after their activities; but, we will grab the responsible and will take them to task.

It is not clear whether it was a suicide attack or a remote controlled device, an official said. They are collecting evidences.

“I think this is the first time that we have found that terrorists have a network in Kashmir ”, Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, a former prime minister and currently a member of the legislative assembly said in an interview. “Otherwise, Kashmir has been comparatively peaceful with no major law and order situation. But there have been three attacks in the last three months. This is a very alarming situation.”

“The attacks seem to be an extension of what is happening in Afghanistan and Pakistan ,” Mr. Chaudhry said. The spate of attacks in Kashmir suggest that the militants are stretching even farther.

Late last month, five people were killed in a suicide attack in Muzaffarabad. INP
