CPI(M) condemns Lahore terror attack

New Delhi, Mar 28: Condemning the "heinous" Lahore terror attack, CPI(M) today urged Pakistan authorities to act against the "religious extremists" resorting to such violence.

"This attack was particularly heinous as perpetrators have themselves claimed that they targeted the Christian community who had gone to the park on Easter Sunday. "The religious extremists who are resorting to such terrorist violence have to be put down firmly by the Pakistani authorities," the party said in a statement.


At least 72 people, mostly women and children, were killed, while 300 others were injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up in the capital of Pakistan's Punjab province.

The responsibility of the brutal attack by a suicide bomber was claimed by Jamaatul Ahrar, a splinter group of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
