20 wounded in blast on Lahore's Outfall Road

LAHORE, AUG 07 (DNA) – An explosion in metropolitan’s Outfall Road has left 20 wounded on Monday while rescue officials and the police are yet to confirm the nature of the blast.

Reportedly, a marriage hall on Blue Road among nearby buildings bore damages out of the blast and building of a college was partially damaged.

Rescue 1122 has shifted the injured to Mian Munshi Hospital whereas police have cordoned off the area.

Initial reports suggested that the explosion resulted off a high-voltage electricity cables mishap. However, there also are reports of explosives planted in a parked truck that went off.

Sources on ground have reported that a minor girl trapped under debris following the blast was recovered and is unharmed.

The blast was reported today around two weeks after a terror attack near Lahore’s Arfa Karim Software Park claimed 26 lives and wounded over 50.
