An FIR was registered on Tuesday in the attack on the Pakistan Stock Exchange building on Karachi’s II Chundrigar Road.

The FIR has been registered at the CTD Civil Lines police station on the orders of the Mithadar SHO. It includes sections on terrorism, possession of explosive material, exchange of fire with the police, murder and attempted murder.

It includes sections 302 (punishment of murder), 324 (attempt to murder), 353 (assaulting on-duty public servant) of the Pakistan Penal Code, along with some sections of the Sindh Arms Act too.

Four suspected terrorists tried to storm into the Pakistan Stock Exchange building Monday morning. They, however, were all killed by the security officers. One police officer and two security guards were martyred in the attack, said the spokesperson of the Karachi police.

“The law enforcement agencies of Pakistan successfully foiled a terrorist attack targeting the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi, ” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.

“The externally-supported cowardly attack is another manifestation of the state-sponsored terrorism being perpetrated against Pakistan, which is highly condemnable,” it said. “Pakistan has been consistently sensitizing the international community about the Indian leadership’s threatening statements to use terrorism as a tool to destabilise Pakistan”.

Pakistan has already shared with the international community, incriminating evidence about the Indian Intelligence Agency RAW’s involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan, it added.
