Quetta bomber was Shia himself

Investigators were taken aback on finding out that a suspected suicide bomber who wanted to blow himself up in a Shia Imambargah in Quetta a few days ago was himself a member of the religious minority and the son of a Shia leader of Jaffarabad district. Pervaiz Ali, the suspected bomber was killed when he blew himself up in a rain drain upon being intercepted by policemen some distance away from a Shia Imambargah in Quetta’s Hazara Town.
The investigators who had earlier attributed the attack to sectarian violence were left confused by the outcome of their probe. Deputy Inspector General Police (Investigation) Nazir Kurd confirmed the identification, saying the suspect was a Shia and son of Farman Ali Haideri, general secretary of Wadatul Muslimeen Jaffarabad chapter, a Shia organisation. Farhan Ali Haideri received the dead body from the morgue of Bolan Medical College Hospital after legal formalities. The deceased lived with his family in Shahbaz Colony in Jatpat area of Jaffarabad district, 360 kilometers south-east of Quetta. Shahzada Zulfiqar
