An explosion occurred at the reservation office of Northern Areas Transport Corporation in Aliabad, Hunza, on Friday midnight.
No major damages and causalities occurred in the explosion that was apparently a cracker attack. No one was hurt in the explosion as the office and bus stand was vacant in that time of the night.
A hairdresser was present at his shop near the explosion site.
“I was watching TV when I heard sound of the explosion. I ran out to see what has happened and I saw a man on a motorcycle fleeing from the site. It was apparently cracker attack.”
Meanwhile, the people of Aliabad have termed the incident as negligence of law enforcers, especially the police.
Police were already requested to boost security in Aliabad, said one resident, adding that the police failed in maintaining peace in Hunza.
Hundreds of protestors took to the roads to demonstrate against the incident.
