Five bombs were defused near the entrance of Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET) in Jamshoro by a Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS).

According to a squad official, we received a call informing about bombs found on the road side. At 8:00 am, the squad reached the location and defused them. The bombs were first identified at 7:30am when university buses do their morning pick-and-drop rounds.

BDS officials also said that the bombs were locally made, weighing around 25 kilograms. They were handed over to Jamshoro police station.

The bombs contained ball bearing, nuts and bolts.

While speaking to the media Vice Chancellor at Mehran University , Prof Dr Aslam Uqaili, said that the unknown suspects were not able to plant the bombs within the university's premises due to internal security measures.
