This Sunday afternoon, an explosion has been reported in Quetta’s Hazarganji.
Reports say, a number of people are believed to have been injured.
Police and rescue teams have left for the site. An emergency has been declared at Civil Hospital and Bolan Medical College. Injured people are being shifted to hospitals.
The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is also hosting its third anti-government rally at the Ayub Ground in Quetta. The rally site is, however, 35 to 40 minutes away from the blast site.
Earlier, Opposition leaders were warned by officials about threats in the city by terrorists prior to the rally.
Because of the PDM (Pakistan Democratic Movement) rally, mobile and internet services in Quetta were shut down creating problems for residents wanting to contact each other.
On the other hand, Lahore has ordered for a crackdown against the smoke-emitting vehicles and factories in order to eliminate heavy smog in the winters.
