No casualty or loss happened. Our senior officers and FSL team are investigating it,” Mohali SP (HQ) Ravinder Pal Singh said after the attack.

 

Former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh in a tweet said, “Shocked to hear about the blast at the @PunjabPoliceInd Intelligence headquarter in Mohali. Thankfully nobody was hurt. This brazen attack on our police force is deeply concerning and I urge CM @BhagwantMann to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice at the earliest.”

 

BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa tweeted that this tragic news came just after a week of Patiala’s clash. He also mentioned that instead of chasing Bagga Punjab Police should look after the security. He also said that it is a border state and Kejriwal should not experiment with peace.
