PESHAWAR: An explosion took place near a mosque late on Monday in Afghan Colony, Peshawar in the jurisdiction of Faqiarabd police station.
Initial reports suggest that the bomb was a low intensity one and damaged the walls of Mian Ahmad Jan's house located nearby.
Police reports initially claimed that the explosion was caused by a gas pipeline blast but a Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) investigation confirmed that one kilogram worth of explosives had been used in the attack.
"The purpose of the blast was to cause panic instead of causing physical damage. There were no casualties in the attack," said a police official.
