ANI  |  Asia 

Two people including a police official were killed and eleven others sustained injuries in a blast, which took place near a police vehicle here on Monday.

The blast occurred in the mini market area of the city. Security officials have arrived on the scene and cordoned off the area, reported Dawn.

The injured, five of whom are police personnel, have been shifted to the Civil Hospital for the treatment.

The nature of the attack has not yet been determined and it is unclear if it was a targeted attack.

The incident comes two days after the attack on Pearl Continental Hotel in the port city of Gwadar, in which four people including three militants were killed.

This is the second attack on police personnel in recent days in Pakistan. On Wednesday, 12 people including five police officials were killed and 25 others were injured in a suicide bombing in Data Darbar Shrine in Lahore.
