Additional Inspector-General Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) Sanaullah Abbasi told reporters that the facilitators of Sehwan Sharif blast were identified through CCTV footage from the days following up to the attack, which also wounded more than 300 devotees.

Abbasi played video footage for reporters showing the suspected facilitators speaking to the suicide bomber at the shrine on February 15, a day before the deadly bombing.

He said the facilitators and the bomber spent around an hour at the shrine that day.
