KARACHI: A low-intensity blast on Friday night in Hindu Para, Soldier Bazaar, near the police station, injured four people, according to a policeman Ishaq Khan present at the site.
Two of the injured are police constables. According to the Soldier Bazaar police, no one died in the blast. The nature of the blast has not yet been determined. However, it is said to have been caused by explosives planted on a motorbike. Crime Investigation Department and Bomb Disposal Squad, which reached the site soon after the blast, were trying to determine whether the explosives were high-intensity ones which did not go off as expected or whether the blast was planned as a small explosion just to cause panic in the area. The blast, however, did break the windows of a nearby building and damaged a pan shop. Four motorcycles were also damaged.
