SSP Operations, Haroon Rasheed Khan proclaims that the attack was from two sides but only one of them had the suicidal bomb with them. Till now, no such evidence or witness has been traced but a man in black has been identified and suspected to be the bomb attacker in the Peshawar blast.
According to eyewitnesses, the man in black was the first to enter the mosque and shot the security. Then, he entered the main hall and blew himself with the rest of the people present in the mosque at that time. Strangely, he killed himself along with other people. Chief Minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa expressed his grief towards the dead and urged for justice for them. He also added that attacking people in a worship place is not right.
