  • Pakistani relative mourn the death of their family member at a hospital in Peshawar

"As he was unable to reach me, he then informed me through a friend that I should skip the meeting", a visibly distraught Danial Bilour said as he addressed fellow ANP leaders and party members hours after his father was martyred in the Tuesday night suicide blast in the city's YakaToot area.

As many as 66 people were injured in the incident and all casualties, including the ANP leader, were shifted to the Lady Reading Hospital.

The late ANP candidate was set to contest the July 25 elections from Peshawar's PK-78 constituency.

11 others were martyred and 35 injured in the suicide bomb attack targeting his rally in a congested neighbourhood of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa capital shortly before the midnight.

"Tomorrow, if they attack me too, every party worker will come out as Haroon Bilour".

Haroon Bilour was approaching the rally organised in connection with his election campaign on Circular Road when the explosion took place.

Earlier this month, seven people including a candidate of the Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal were injured in an explosion during an election rally near Takhtikhel canal.

The Pakistani Taliban, a loosely aligned umbrella group of several militant and sectarian bands, has been waging a war against the Pakistani state for over a decade, killing tens of thousands of people.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

The National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta) on Monday had revealed the names of six personalities, including Imran Khan and Hafiz Saeed's son, who could be targeted by terrorists during the ongoing election campaign.

He said Nacta had forwarded 12 threat alerts to the federal interior and provincial home ministries as well as law enforcement agencies.
