    Who is this women suicide bomber?
    How could she managed to get into Army HQ? Who gave access to her? how could she became so powerful?
    Who is responsible for such worst security lapses in Army HQ?
    Why personal butler of Army Cheif who was captured for this conspiracy was allowed to hang himself in the custody?
    There are many more questions un-answered...
