Karachi : At least three people have died and nearly 15 people were injured in a blast in a four-storey building in Pakistan's Karachi on Wednesday (October 21).

All people who were injured in the incident and those who lost their lives have been shifted to a nearby hospital. The cops are investigating the reason behind the blast, however initial media reports claim that it was a cylinder blast.

The deadly incident took place at a time when Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has ordered an enquiry into rumours that Sindh police chief was kidnapped by Pakistan army troops in order to put pressure on Karachi police to arrest Safdar Awan, the son-in-law of former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

According to The International Herald, 10 Karachi police officers were killed in clashes that broke out in the financial capital of Pakistan. It also claimed that a ‘civil war’ has broken out following the violent clashes between police and the Army.

Meanwhile, Opposition leaders are also organizing rallies and protesting on streets, demanding resignation of PM Imran Khan.
