KARACHI: A hand-grenade blast near the Rainbow Centre in Saddar on Thursday night left Abdul Razzak, an inspector of the Intelligence Bureau (IB), dead and 19 people injured.
Police said the blast occurred around 10pm outside a milk shop where fruit pushcarts were lined up. The injured, who included fruit vendors and passersby, were rushed to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre and the Civil Hospital.
