KHAR: Two music shops were among six shops destroyed on Sunday morning as a powerful bomb explosion rocked Khar, the capital of Bajaur Agency. Several other shops were partially damaged in the explosion. The explosives were planted close to the two music centres, locals told Daily Times.
No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the blast so far. Political administration officials said that security had been beefed up in and around Khar city. Traders and retailers in the area demanded that the government ensure the safety of their lives and property.
