Islamabad: Pakistani investigators were
left red-faced on Saturday after a youth they claimed was a suicide
bomber who targeted a Sufi shrine in Karachi returned to his
home.

Police and Federal Investigation Agency officials had
claimed that Naseebullah Gul was one of two suicide bombers
who targeted Abdullah Shah Ghazi`s shrine on Thursday.

Ten people were killed in the attack.

Gul arrived at his home safe and sound late last
night, Geo News channel reported.

Police had arrested Gul`s father and brother when they
went to a local hospital to identify the body of an alleged
suicide attacker.

They were set free after Gul returned home.

There was no reaction to the re-emergence of Gul from
federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik, who had endorsed the
claim of police and FIA officials that Gul was one of suicide
bombers involved in the attack.
