PESHAWAR: Two people were injured when a bomb exploded on Kohat Road on Saturday evening.

The bomb, police said, had been planted at the gate of Haji Rahim Afridi’s Hujra near the Ghaz Stop. Gul Faraz and Jehanzeb who were at house, were injured in the subsequent blast.

“One Gul Faraz is injured critically while the other one has sustained minor wounds. It seems to be a case of militancy as in the past the house of Afridi has been attacked in Matani area too,” DSP Riazul Islam of Badabher Police Station said while talking to The Express Tribune, adding that around two kilogram of explosive had been used in the bomb.

It is worth mentioning here that it was the second explosion of its kind on Kohat Road today.

No one has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
