Initial reports say the bomb went off outside a police station which left 32 injured as well; the dead and injured have been shifted to the Civil Hospital in the city.

The identities of the dead, as well as the inured, have been revealed; Jamal Din, Sharafud Din, Ali Shah and Ain Ullah were among the deceased.
