PESHAWAR: At least three persons were injured in a hand-grenade attack on Sunday near an election office of the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) in Fazalabad area of Takht Bhai tehsil near Mardan.

Rescue and officials reached the site of attack.

Police sources told that unknown motorcycle-riding attackers  lobbed a hand-grenade near the election office of the PTI where the party’s candidate from NA-10, Rehmanullah, was holding a corner meeting and that the injured were shifted to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Several attacks, claimed by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), have recently taken place targeting several political parties, namely the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and the Awami National Party (ANP), across the country.
