LAHORE: At least 34 people, including children, have been wounded in a suspicious explosion in Lahore today (Monday), SAMAA reported.

According to police sources, explosive material was hidden in a truck filled with fruits. An eyewitness claimed that the fruit truck had been covered with cloth hence he did not have an idea regarding what explosive material was inside it.

Reportedly, the truck had arrived from Swat and was in the area since the past three days.

Rescue teams reached the scene and shifted the injured to Mayo Hospital and Mian Munshi Hospital, where emergency was declared.

Security forces cordoned off the area and launched a probe into the blast. The blast took place in NA-120 constituency which will be up for grabs in September when PTI and PML-N lock horns in a by-election.

Emergency has been imposed across all hospitals in Lahore.

Shehbaz takes notice of bomb blast incident

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has taken notice of the bomb blast at Outfall Road and has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

The chief minister has tasked authorities to present a report on the incident to him and to cover the investigation into the matter from all angles.

Meanwhile, he also gave directions for the injured to be provided with the best available medical care.
