Rawalpindi , July 31 (ANI): A recent study conducted by a forensic lab in Pakistan has found that suicide bombers have developed suicide underwear which they use in tying explosive materials to carry out their nefarious designs.

According to sources at the Sihala Police College Forensic Lab, the study of recent suicide attacks showed that suicide bombers used explosives-laden under-garments, briefs in particular, to carry out the attacks.

The law enforcers normally search upper body parts sparing the privates, the sources said, hence assailants are increasingly using the lower body parts to dodge the searches.

The explosives could weigh 5-7 kilogrammes, made deadly by adding glass splinters, metal ball bearings and bullets, the Daily Times quoted them as saying.

The sources further said that forensic experts were trying to devise methods to pre-empt suicide bombing. The experts have achieved successes in Post Bombing Investigation, the sources said, adding that resources are sharpening Pre Bombing Investigation techniques. (ANI)
