According to details, police officials on a tip-off recovered explosive material from a culvert on the main road in Silpi village, located on the opposite side of Gahkuch, the district headquarters. The explosives were hidden inside a water-cooler.

The device was defused by officials of the bomb disposal squad. There are reports that around 10 kilograms of explosives were used in the device.

There are reports that the Governor of Gilgit-Baltistan, Syed Pir Karam Ali Shah, was scheduled to pass through the road where the bomb was found.

Ghizar district shares borders with KPK. However, in the past it has relatively remained peaceful.

In the wake of the Peshawar massacre, the federal government had warned the Gilgit-Baltistan administration to tighten security of important installations and public places.

After recovery of the explosive device, the security of prominent personalities has been enhanced throughout the region.
