Karachi: One sub-inspector and four security guards were killed and three police officials were injured after terrorists attacked Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi on Monday (June 29). The attackers were armed with grenades and automatic rifles.

The gunmen attacked the building, which is in a high-security zone that also houses the head offices of many private banks, said Karachi police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon. “Four attackers have been killed, they had come in a silver Corolla car,” Memon was quoted as saying to Reuters.

The Pakistan Stock Exchange tweeted, “The situation is still unfolding. There was an attack on the PSX compound earlier today. The situation is still unfolding and management, with the help of security forces, is managing the security and controlling the situation. We will issue a more detailed statement in due course once the situation is under control and more details are known. For now, firing has stopped and reinforcement is in place.”

Later on, the Pakistan Stock exchange tweeted an official statement regarding the terrorist attack. “The situation was brought under control in 12 minutes, thanks to LEAs. The market continued to operate normally during the incident. An attack on PSX, means an attack on Pakistan’s Economy,” read the tweet.

Sindh Governor Imran Ismail condemned the incident. He tweeted, “Have instructed the IG & security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are caught alive & their handlers are accorded exemplary punishments. We shall protect Sindh at all costs.”
