The injured are in a critical condition

At least two people were killed and three people were wounded in a gas explosion in Hafizabad on Friday.

The deceased have been identified Shehnaz Bibi and her 12-year-old son, Asad Khalid.

There was a gas leakage in their house located near the railway line, Gulzarpura. The blast occurred after Shehnaz lit a matchstick to start the stove. The roof and walls of the house collapsed after the explosion. Asad suffocated to death under the debris.
