Meanwhile, security agencies in Pakistan conducted a search of a hotel owned by family members of Pakistani-born London attacker, Khuram Shazad Butt, the Dawn reported.

Reports of the raid on the hotel, located on GT Road in the Mujahidabad area, were confirmed by area residents who said the search was carried out in the morning.
Police, along with Counter-Terrorism Department and Special Security Branch raided the restaurant belonging to Butt’s uncle, sources said, adding that the operation was a precautionary measure after the attacker’s link to Pakistan was reported by the media.
They suggested that Butt was not ‘radicalised’ in Pakistan, and that the family does not have links to religious parties.
