Islamabad – Staff Reporter:
Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed on Thursday said that India does not want to see peace in Pakistan, but all their attempts to create unrest in the country will fail.
The interior minister, in a statement after a blast in Quetta, said that this is the safest area in the city and foreigners also stay in this hotel.
At least five people were killed and 10 injured in the explosion along the city’s Zarghun Road Wednesday.
Rasheed said that a vehicle somehow managed to enter the hotel, adding that “hotel security [staff] is fine, one or two personnel are injured.”
“There must be some breach in security and that is why an explosive-laden car was able to enter.”
The federal minister added that India does not want peace in Pakistan, but their attempt to damage Pakistan will fail.
“Anti-Pakistan elements want to damage the country’s peace. Terrorists shall meet their end.”
Sharing further details on the law and order situation in the country, he said that there were threats for such an attack in Quetta, Peshawar, Karachi, Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
Chinese Ambassador Nong Rong, who was staying at the same hotel, was not present at the time of the blast, Rasheed added. “He was attending a function at another place in the city.”
