 Updated at: 1357 PST,  Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Discrepancies surround PNS Mehran case KARACHI: Severe contradictions have emerged following the audacious attack on PNS Mehran in Karachi, Geo News reported.

The differences found in the statements of Interior Minister Rehman Malik, Naval Chief and the FIR lodged by the Navy have complicated the matter.

According to police, an FIR 447/11 has been registered under the explosives and terrorism act in Shahra-e-Faisal Police Station where
Lt Irfan Asghar, who was at the night duty on the same night when the base was attacked, told that there were 10-12 terrorists who attacked the base.

The militants entered the base by scaling the walls near check post number 2 whereas the press briefing by the Interior Minister has astonished the entire nation where he stated that there were six militants who attacked the base. Four out of six attackers were shot dead while the other two were able to escape the area.

On the other hand, Naval Chief Noman Bashir also confirmed the number of dead militants but could not confirm about the number of escaped militants.

According to police, proofs have been found that there were four terrorists involved in the attack and they were carrying suicide jackets and other explosives.
