‘Masood Azhar escaped unhurt in Rawalpindi military hospital blast


Information reaching the Indian intelligence agencies, three days after speculation about a blast at the Rawalpindi military hospital went viral, confirmed that there was indeed a powerful explosion in the fortress-like facility though it did not cause any harm to Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar.

Azhar was said to have been at the hospital at the time of the blast, apparently for treatment relating to renal failure. Social media updates on Monday had indicated that around 10 people were injured in the blast, including Azhar.

Sources in the security establishment tracking the developments in Pakistan on Wednesday said while it can be said without any doubt that there was a powerful blast at the military hospital, Azhar managed to escape unscathed.

Azhar suffers from acute renal failure and is known to visit the Rawalpindi military hospital regularly for dialysis.  Read More
