QUETTA: At least five people were injured in an explosion on Quetta’s Qambrani road on Monday, said the provincial spokesperson.
A large number of law enforcers cordoned of the incident area after the explosion and shifted the injured to nearby medical facilities.
The nature of the explosion is being ascertained by investigative authorities. Provincial spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani also condemned the explosion.
This is the second explosion in Balochistan within a week.
On May 21, at least seven people, including three leaders of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Nazaryati, were killed and 14 others injured in an explosion in Chaman, a town at the Pak-Afghan border in Qila Abdullah district.
Police officials said that the blast took place in the Boghara Chowk area of the border town after the conclusion of the Palestine solidarity rally staged by the JUI-N to condemn the Israeli aggression against the oppressed Palestinians in Gaza.
Official sources said a motorcycle rigged with an improvised explosive device was parked near the venue of the rally and detonated when Maulana Luni was leaving along with other party leaders and workers.
