DERA ISMAIL KHAN: At least 10 people including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Law Minister Israrullah Gandapur were killed and over 30 others injured when a suicide bomber struck a gathering on Wednesday, police said.

The injured were shifted to the Kolachi Tehsil hospital, while those in critical condition were taken to the District Headquarters Hospital in Dera Ismail Khan.

The suicide bomber entered the residence of Gandapur in the Kolachi area and detonated his explosive-rigged vest. The people had gathered at his residence to greet the minister on Eid-ul-Azha.

Speaking to senior journalist Saleem Safi, the brother of Gandapur confirmed that the provincial minister had been killed in the attack.

Israrullah Gandapur was elected from PK-67 (DI Khan IV) as an independent candidate during the 2013 general elections and later joined the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, President Manmoon Hussain, PTI chairman Imran Khan and ANP chief Asfandyar Wali Khan condemned the attack. Imran Khan directed the provincial government to launch an investigation and take action against those involved.

Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has summoned a report from IG Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
