Quetta, Pakistan, Aug 8 (IBNS): At least 35 people were killed and over 30 others sustained injuries, following a massive explosion in Pakistan's Quetta city, media reports said.

Geo News reported that the blast took place inside a civil hospital premises, after the body of Balochistan Bar Association President Bilal Kasi was brought to the emergency department.

Kasi was shot at Mano Road on Monday morning.

Former Balochistan Bar President Baz Muhammad Kakar was also fatally wounded in the attack, reports said.

A state of emergency has been declared in Quetta hospitals.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
