Thirty people survived the attack on the bus on Friday but the police have been able to record only one person’s version of events, that of the cleaner, Nadeem Khan.
“There was complete panic yesterday and everyone who survived fled except for a few, including the injured,” said Qazi Ahmed SHO Edan Siyal.
