Who sent the ‘get well soon’ card bomb to Durban family?
A team of explosive experts detonated the remnants of a parcel bomb that exploded in a plush Durban home on Friday afternoon.
It is understood that five people were injured — three members of the Khan family — after a parcel containing flowers and a card were delivered to the home around midday.
It is not known who sent the letter bomb or why.
A team of policemen cordoned off the upmarket Stephen Dlamini Road (formerly Essenwood) as curious neighbours gathered to find out what had unfolded at the Khan household.
A shaken Saleem Khan‚ an insurance broker who leased the house‚ said he had narrowly missed becoming a victim.
He had to rush his family members to hospital‚ one who is believed to be in a critical condition.
Garrith Jameson of Rescue Care paramedics said police conducted a “controlled explosion” to secure the house.
The house is owned by one of the directors of the Willowton Group of companies.
