A woman and her two children were killed and seven people injured in a gas cylinder explosion in Karachi's Gulistan-e-Jauhar, the police said Wednesday morning.

The blast occurred at a restaurant that serves pizzas and two nearby shops, including a real estate office and an ice cream parlour, were affected too.

Three vehicles parked outside the eatery have been destroyed, including a K-Electric vehicle. The driver of the K-Electric vehicle is said to be in critical condition.

The blast could've occurred because of a gas leakage, Gulshan SP Muhammad Maroof Usman said while speaking to the media. The gas could've been leaked by LPG cylinders.

"Three casualties have been reported so far," he said, and explained that Saadia and her two children, Fatima and Abdullah, were climbing stairs in the building above the shop when the blast occurred.

A loud blast was reported near Mosamiyat at 10am and it spread fear among area residents. Many of them came out of their houses following it, according to witnesses.

There are residential apartments above the shop. A Sindh Building Control Authority team has been called to inspect the building.

Police, Rangers, and other security forces have reached the site and cordoned it off. The bomb disposal squad has been summoned too.
