The injured officers were rushed to the Datta Khel Camp hospital for emergency treatment where their condition was declared stable by hospital staff.

The officer martyred in the blast was identified as Havildar Ahmed Khan; the injured were identified as Mudassir, Aleem and Akram.

The area has been cordoned off and investigations into the incident are underway, say sources within the government.
