KARACHI: A blast occurred in an apartment in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority late Saturday, due to pre-mature ignition of explosive materials. However, no loss of life was reported.

The incident took place on Khayaban-e-Bukhari in Phase 6 of DHA, according to DawnNews.

The inhabitants of the apartment fled immediately after the blast, while one suspect was caught by the police.

According to eye witnesses, a few suspected individuals had moved into the apartment four days ago.

After hearing the blast, when the residents tried to enter the apartment they were stopped and told that the blast occurred due to an explosion in the geyser. Suspecting otherwise, the residents forced their way in and found an injured man. Explosives-making material was also found in the apartment, according to the eye-witness accounts.
