QUETTA: A man was injured in an IED explosion close to a seminary near Satellite Town here on Wednesday.
Police said unidentified people parked a motorcycle rigged with an improvised explosive device in the Ishaqabad area and detonated the IED with remote control.
A passerby was injured in the blast. Windowpanes of some nearby shops and buildings were smashed.
Police shifted the injured person to Civil Hospital.
“Madressah Darul Uloom Sharia was the likely target of the blast,” police said, adding that an investigation was under way.
Last year this seminary was hit by a bomb blast that killed 20 people, including a senior police officer and the prayer leader, when they were offering Maghrib prayers. About 40 people were injured.
