`Pak naval base attackers were foreigners`
Karachi: The DNA test report of the four terrorists killed during Karachi’s Mehran Naval Station attack has finally confirmed that they were foreigners.
According to SSP Investigation Niaz Khoso, the Sindh Police have received a DNA report of the killed PNS Mehran attackers, which has confirmed that all of them, who were in their mid-twenties, were Eurasian.
All four terrorists had blood relations to each other, and might be brothers or cousins, he added.
However, apart from the DNA report, there has been no major breakthrough in the case since the attack, although law enforcement agencies have claimed progress in investigations, The Nation quoted sources, as saying.
The results of the DNA samples collected from the four terrorists who were killed during the raid on the naval base in Karachi, was matched up against a national database.
However, authorities were unsuccessful in establishing the identity of the terrorists. The DNA samples will now be sent to the International Data Bank for identification, The Express Tribune reports.
Analysts, however, say that the failure to establish the terrorists’ identity could be a result of the National Database Registration Authority’s imperfect database of Pakistani citizens.
