The coordinator said the 44 victims of the blast had been treated and discharged, and that six others were still on admission in various hospitals in the state.

It will be recalled that the police confirmed the death of 15 persons and 34 injured in the incident on Wednesday.

On the recent allegation of human rights abuse leveled against the military by the Amnesty International, Omeri said the National Human Rights Commission had promised to investigate it.

He vowed that government would not tolerate human rights abuse in the country.
