The bomb was planted in a motorcycle at the site of the blast.
Caretaker Sindh Chief Minister Justice (retd) Zahid Kurban Alavi took notice of the blast and directed IG Sindh to issue a detailed report.
This is the third blast of the day, after twin blasts in the Orangi Town area of Karachi killed at least two people and left 27 wounded earlier on Saturday evening.
