Business Avenue Bomb Threat

Business Avenue bomb threat

Business Avenue bomb threat

I just heard of a bomb threat in Business Avenue at Shahrah-e-Faisal. The building has been evacuated and emergency measures have been taken by the authorities. The picture was taken at 3pm, showing ambulances in front of the building and people waiting around.

So, everyone whose offices are near Business Avenue, be a bit more than careful. Also, if anybody has more updates on this, do share.

Edit: Just got confirmation that the building has been cleared and people are back to work.

    we as nation lack system & organization., be it running the country or managing threats or a disaster,

    in the outside world in cases of such threats, the emergency & rescue vehicles are stationed at some safe distance from the point of "expected" accident while evacuation proceeds. – don’t pull me leg or throw flames at me, but….. see the video footage of November Bombay Drama, their Fire dept, medical rescuse system seems much better then ours.

    While looking at the picture, imagine the HUMONGOUS loss just incase the blast have occured and building was crippled and under danger of collapse………………….!

    if any of you a-holes are reading this blog, raise alarm GOVT of SINDH & Karachi City Govt shall screen, among their crisis management teams and the ambulance services operating in Karachi, Hollywood movies of search & rescue so learn the basics of S&R.

    There’s no harm in learning from the movies which cost just Rs. 80.00 but send a great message across learn to serve, and respect value of HUMAN LIFE not just the BAY WATCH CHIX

    – 4 cents –
