ISLAMABAD: Peshawar Commissioner Sahibzada Muhammad Anis's condition has worsened, Express News reported on Sunday. 

The commissioner, a BS-20 officer, whose condition was earlier reported as critical by doctors, had suffered 99 per cent burns in an explosion in Apartment 17 of the Park Towers studio apartments in Sector F-10 Islamabad.

Asghar Nisa, a woman who was also in the apartment and had sustained 45 per cent burn injuries, is also in critical condition the doctors said.

Police sources had attributed the explosion to a gas leak in the apartment.

Both patients were admitted at the hospital’s burn centre.

Confirming the incident, Pims Spokesperson Dr Ayesha Eshani had said Anis was in a critical condition as the burn injuries summed up to almost 100 per cent.

The apartment in which the explosion had occurred is in the basement of the building which is located next to the main towers.

The door of the apartment was completely destroyed in the explosion but items such as the TV in the small living room and the bed in the bedroom appeared undamaged.

There were glass shards in a narrow lane next to the apartment from shattered windows. A security guard of the complex had said that the explosion had affected around 10 adjacent apartments.

According to sources, the commissioner was staying at the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa House along with his family and was in town to see-off his son, who left for the UK on October 25.

Meanwhile, SSP Operations Muhammad Rizwan had said the commissioner was at the apartment to visit a friend.

There were no fire extinguishers or fire exits in the basement of the building.
