KARACHI - One person was killed and more than 50 others injured in six blasts within a span of 60 minutes which ripped through different parts of Karachi, the commercial and industrial hub of the country on Monday. Police was put on high alert as authorities declared emergency in all hospitals.   According to eye witnesses, two explosions occurred in Banaras area within a short span of time. One of the blasts took place in a garbage dump situated near Zainab Mobile Market in Orangi Town police limits while the other was on a footpath near Banaras Chowk which injured 16 people, some of them very seriously. The injured were shifted to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. The third explosion ripped through a mini-truck in North Nazimabad area of Shahra-e-Noor Jehan near Sohail Mosque. Five persons were injured, area police said. However, Chhipa ambulance services shifted 8 persons to hospital. The fourth and fifth blast occurred here in Motor Pak Colony and Bara Board area, killing one person and injuring several others. According to the officials of Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS), the terrorists had fixed the bomb in vehicle parked in congested area, in which some 2kg explosives had been used while the other blasts had comparatively low intensity. BDS official pointed out that culprits had used remote control in Pak Colony blasts while the other blasts occurred with timer. Enraged people took to the streets and pelted moving vehicles with stones, thus smashing glasses of dozens of vehicles. The injured included Fayyaz 30, Ibrahim 25, Farhanullah 25, Ali Asghar 20, Asif 12, Gulzada,45, Azim 12, Yaseen 13, Khan Wali 25, Abdul Hamid, 30, Arshad 12, Muhammad Ilyas 22, Niaz 20, Abdullah 25, Sartag Khan 40, Muhammad Azam 15, Rizwan 2 year old, Wasiullah, 17, Nadeem 45, Abdul Manan, 16, Kareemullah 32, Fahmida 11, Waseem 38, Farman 14, Arshad 55, Jan Wali, 32, Aziz Khan, 12, Owais 16, Shireen,15, Imran Hafiz 12, Amjad 10, Aqeel Ahmed 11, and two sisters included seven year old Asma and Afshan who is eight-year-old. Police mobiles rushed to the spot of blasts while ambulances started rescue drive and shifted the injured to different hospitals. In some areas enraged people started aerial firing and also came on the roads blocking the flow of traffic. However, Inspector General of the Sindh Police Sallahuddin Babar Khattak said the blasts were not of higher intensity. It will be much difficult for the police to find out the motive behind the series of blasts. The IGP, however, said that the investigation teams headed by DIGs to probe the incident have been formed. It is pertinent to mention here that the areas where the blast occurred were dominated areas of Pakhtoons and the first two blasts which occurred near Banaras Chowk are prominently dominated area of Pakhtoons and the head office of Awami National Party is located there. Crime Investigation Department (CID) said that time devices were used in the blasts. Jehadi elements cannot be behind these blasts. They suspected the involvement of foreign hands behind the blasts while the BDS officials also confirmed that explosive used in the blasts was locally made. Our Monitoring Desk adds: Police and Rangers were put on high alert in the city following the series of blasts, and the authorities declared emergency in local hospitals. It is reportedly said that five children are among the injured who were shifted to different hospitals of the city. "The explosions were apparently caused by large-size firecrackers," reported the channel, quoting city chief police officer Wasim Ahmad. He said explosions took place in seven different areas. "Bomb disposal teams have been sent to inspect the sites and collect more information," he added. A K for a K? Special correspondent The morning saw a blast in Kabul. And the evening saw seven in Karachi. The two varied in many ways. Kabul's had a bodycount of 41. The Karachi blasts had one. Kabul's had a specific target and was geared towards doing the maximum physical damage. The Karachi blasts were spread out and were probably geared towards spreading panic. The two were similar in one aspect, though: the Taliban have denied involvement in either. That raises a whodunit. The hawks within the Indian media machine had a field day, blaming the ISI for Kabul, specially in the wake of an Afghan Interior Ministry official's allegation that "an active intelligence service in the region" was involved. But it's not just the ISI that fits that description, specially when the Karachi blasts are examined. "There is a strong possibility that RAW is involved," says Lt Gen ( r ) Hamid Gul, referring to the Indian spy agency. "Whether it was a direct retribution for Kabul or not, they certainly do have a network at work in Karachi. And it would serve the Indian interests to destabilize the law and order situation in the country." The former DG ISI also asserts that the attacks might have a pro-Musharraf motive. He is not alone in his suspicion of RAW. "This does not appear to be the work of an extremist outfit," says Rawalpindi-based Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, now the chief of his own faction of the Muslim League. "If it were, the blasts would have had specific targets. The Karachi blasts were meant to create panic and confusion."
