Blast in Pakistan leaves two dead

| @indiablooms | 08 Apr 2024, 09:09 am

At least two people died and five others were injured after a bomb explosion hit Khuzdar town in Pakistan on Sunday.

Police told Dawn News that the powerful blast took place at Umar Farooq Chowk, a busy shopping area of Khuzdar.

At the time of the explosion, a large number of people, including women and children, were busy shopping in the market.

“Two people have been killed and five others injured in the explosion,” a senior officer told Dawn News, adding that police and other law enforcement forces rushed to the explosion site and shifted the bodies and injured to Khuzdar Teaching Hospital.

Hospital officials told the Pakistani newspaper, “We have received two bodies and five injured indi­v­iduals at the hospital.”

Police officials stated that unknown miscreants planted an improvised explosive device (IED) on a motorbike and parked it at Umar Farooq Chowk.

“It seems, the motorbike IED was detonated with a remote control,” police said.

Investigation into the incident is currently underway.

No group has claimed responsibility for the blast so far.
