Lashkar-e-Toiba bomb expert Syed Abdul Karim Tunda, 73, who is an accused in around 40 bomb blasts cases, was Wednesday attacked by two inmates in Karnal Jail. He was brought to Karnal Jail on Tuesday for his appearance in a bomb blast case in Panipat court. In the jail, he had an argument with two inmates who later tried to strangle him.

However, he only suffered minor injuries as the jail staff came to his rescue and took him to a hospital. “A case of attempt to murder has been registered against the two inmates,” police said.
