The 2019 Lahore bombing was a suicide bomb attack that occurred on 8 May 2019 outside Data Darbar in Lahore city, Pakistan killed at least 13 people.[1] including five policemen[2] and injured at least 24.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] CCTV footage of the blast showed the bomber targeted an Elite Police mobile parked outside the shrine.[11] Hizbul Ahrar - a splinter group of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar and Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan- had claimed responsibility for the attack. On 9 May 2019, security forces arrested four suspects during a raid in Lahore's Garhi Shahu area.[12] On 10 May 2019, the provincial government formed a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the incident.[13]
