“Terrorists parked the explosive-laden motorcycle on the roadside and detonated it with a remote control,” said a police source.

After the blast, ambulances arrived at the scene and the injured were shifted to the nearby hospital.

After the incident, police and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel reached the scene and shifted the bodies and injured to Civil Hospital.

Later, the injured soldiers were shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Quetta.

The police cordoned off the area as an investigation into the blast is underway. Meanwhile, no group has claimed the responsibility for the blast yet.

It is pertinent to mention here, this is the not the only blast that had taken place in Quetta in this week. On Monday, a bomb blast had injured nine people when a police van was targeted in the city.

The blast occurred due to explosive material planted in a motorcycle on Quetta’s Spinny road.
