At least four people including three children were injured on Tuesday in a blast on Peshawar’s Warsak Road, Aaj News reported.

The incident took place near the Babu Garhi Chowk in the limits of the Machini Gate police station. Police and rescue teams rushed to the site while the wounded have been shifted to a hospital.

Two of the children were in critical condition, Mohammad Asim, a spokesman for the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar told Reuters.

While speaking to the media, Warsak Road Superintendent of Police Arshad Khan said the incident took place near the Peshawar Public School at around 9:10am. He added that four kilograms of explosives were used in the blast.

Meanwhile, Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar strongly condemned the blast and directed the relevant authorities to provide the best medical facilities to the children injured, as per Radio Pakistan.

He directed the law enforcement agencies to complete investigation of the incident at the earliest, saying that terrorists will not be allowed to destroy peace of Pakistan.

Interim Interior Minister Sarfraz Ahmed Bugti also strongly condemned the incident, issuing directives for no stone to be left unturned for the treatment of the injured children.

Pakistan has witnessed an uptick in terror activities after the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan ended its ceasefire with the government in November last year.

Last month, five people were killed in a bomb blast in Dera Ismail Khan. At least 21 people were also wounded.

The bomb exploded close to the route of a police patrol in the city, police official Mohammad Adnan told Reuters.
