Quetta, Aug 16 (IBNS): In a powerful improvised explosive device (IED) blast inside Kuchlak Madrassa, 25 kms away from Quetta in Pakistan, four people, including the brother of a Afghan Taliban leader, were killed and several got injured.

According to government sources, the brother of Afghan Taliban leader was also killed.

The seminary was known for its ISI linkages from where Afghan Taliban was also extended support.

South Asia experts say the incident is an early signal of Pakistan's failed Afghan strategy after a "failed Kashmir policy."

Following the incident, the injured people were rushed to nearby hospitals for treatment.

Security officials cordoned off the area after the blast.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Shehbaz Sharif condoled the loss of lives in the incident and tweeted: "Strongly condemn the blast in Kuchlak Quetta. The purpose of such nefarious activities is to undermine peace in Pakistan. We have come this far in war against terrorism after exemplary sacrifices. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families."
