It is not the first time that after bomb blast concerned authorities and media have shown a CNIC (Computerized National Identity Card) of a person and have stated that he was suicide bomber. After few days it is revealed that he is not suicide bomber but was a common man.
Same thing happened after Lahore Blast as concerned authorities and media showed CNIC of a person named Yousuf. After the blast his CNIC was shown and he was named as suicide bomber. But now investigation took a new turn as police said that the identity card found from the location of the blast did not belong to the suicide bomber.

Law enforcers arrested three of his brothers also and raided a seminary he was teacher at. But now it is clear that Yousuf only came to visit park but media and concerned authorities without investigating named him.

Government and media should apologies to family for this incident. PEMRA should also take action against channels and whoever provided this CNIC to media should also be punished.
