A high-intensity blast took place outside Police Lines in the Qila Gujar Sigh area of Lahore, the capital city of Pakistan’s largest populated province Punjab on Tuesday (today). Rescue sources have stated that at least eight people were killed as a result of the blast. Jamaat ul Ahrar, a splinter group of Deobandi Taliban, claimed responsibility for the bombing.

The police chief of Lahore, Captain (retd) Amin Wains said that the bombing was a suicide attack. He added that the attacker was trying to enter the Police Lines and was 20-25 years old.

There are a number of commercial plazas, schools, banks and offices as well as a residential area near the vicinity of the blast site. Police have also increased security at the entry and exit points of the city.

Earlier, it was reported that the blast took place inside a vehicle parked outside a tea shop setting fire to 5-6 cars parked in the area. Motorcycles were also damaged while the windows of nearby buildings were shattered.

The intensity of the blast was so severe that it could be heard for miles away in the city.
