Says it occurred close to a police checkpost
At least 10 people received minor injuries after a “locally made” bomb went off near a police check-post in Peshawar’s Karkhano area Tuesday evening, a senior police official said.
SSP Operations Zahoor Afridi told SAMAA TV that none of the victims was seriously injured.
The injured, who also included a policeman, were shifted to Hayatabad Medical Complex.
“It appears to be a locally made thing [bomb],” SSP Afridi said, adding that the bomb disposal squad was collecting evidence from the scene.
The check-post is located close to the Khyber district and usually manned by dozens of baton-carrying personnel, the official added.
