CAPE TOWN - The People Against Gangsterism and Drugs (Pagad) has denied responsibility for attempting to bomb a suspected gun peddler's home.

An explosive device was thrown at Irshaad Laher's Rondebosch home last week but it didn't detonate.

The 41-year-old is facing criminal charges for allegedly selling guns to gangsters.

Pagad's Haroon Orrie says the group's members are not to blame.

"We understand the frustration of the people and the community at large. The individual we are talking about has many enemies but it is something we are looking into, as who could be behind it from our side. We are investigating it."
