RAWALPINDI: Would-be suicide bombers could be using explosives
“underwear briefs” rather than explosives jackets to evade
“conservative” body searches, sources said on Wednesday.
Sihala Police College forensic lab sources told Daily Times that the
study of recent suicide attacks showed that suicide bombers used
“explosives-laden” under-garments, briefs in particular, to carry out
The sources said that the explosives could weigh between five
kilogrammes to seven kilogrammes, made deadly by adding glass splinters,
metal ball bearings and bullets. The law enforcers normally search upper
body parts sparing the “privates”, the sources said, hence assailants
are increasingly using the lower body parts to dodge the searches. The
sources said that forensic experts were trying to devise methods to
pre-empt suicide bombing. The experts have achieved successes in “Post
Bombing Investigation,” the sources said, adding that resources are
sharpening “Pre Bombing Investigation” techniques.
