Peshawar: A senior police officer and his
guards escaped unhurt when their vehicle was targeted with a
roadside bomb in this northwestern Pakistani city on Friday.

The low intensity remote controlled bomb went off in
Afridiabad in Peshawar’s suburbs when Deputy Superintendent of
Police Gulbahar Iftikhar was passing through the area in a van
this morning, district administration chief Shahibzada Anees
said.

The blast partially damaged the van though no one was
hurt, Anees said. The explosive device was planted along the
roadside. Police cordoned off the area after the blast and
launched a search for the attackers.

Militants have carried out several attacks in the
same area over the past few weeks.
