The incident occurred when an explosion occurred, caused by the accidental detonation of a hand grenade, as confirmed by an official statement.

DSP Headquarters Nawaz Khan sustained injuries in the incident, while Constables Shah Mahmood and Aslam Gul tragically lost their lives at the scene. The explosion was attributed to mishandling by a police officer, with authorities swiftly confirming that the incident was an unfortunate accident and ruling out any terrorist involvement.
