At least four people sustained wounds in a blast on Quetta’s Sariab Road here on Friday (today).

According to police, some explosive material fitted on a motorcycle went off. Television footage of the scene showed the bike engulfed in flames with thick plumes of smoke blowing from it.

On getting information, a heavy contingent of law enforcement agencies and rescue teams reached the spot.

The injured were shifted to a nearby hospital for immediate medical assistance.

The law enforcers cordoned off the explosion site to collect evidence and launched a search operation in the area to arrest the culprit(s).

However, there was no immediate word as to the intensity of the blast.

The remote-controlled bomb was planted on a motorbike.
