Suicide blast on Lahore's Bedian road martyrs six, injures 15

LAHORE - At least six persons including three army and one Air Force personnel were martyred and 15 sustained injuries in a suicide blast on Lahore’s Bedian Road on Wednesday.

The blast occurred in a van which was standing near Manawala chowk and appears to have been an attack targeting a census team. Nearby vehicles and buildings were also damaged from the explosion.
Police, Army, CTD and Rangers personnel arrived at the blast scene and cordoned off the area.
Rescue teams also reached the spot and shifted the injured to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) and General Hospital for medical assistance.

Initial investigations suggests that the attacker targeted the census team and was aged between 18-24 years. Explosive material weighing 8-10kg and ball bearings were used in the blast.

The report says that the suicide bomber seems to be an Uzbek and exploded himself after arriving at the back side of the van.

Forensic team has gathered the body parts of the suicide bomber.

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah also confirmed the details.  "It appears to have been an act of terrorism. The attack targeted the census team van. The nature of the blast is yet to be ascertained," he said.
