Lahore blast was accident, not terrorism: Rana Sana

Lahore Blast Updates

LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that blast in the defense
area was an accident and not terrorism.

Addressing a press conference, he said, “initial reports and proofs suggest that there was
gas leakage in the building. There was also presence of gas cylinders, therefore, there
is strong possibility that the explosion was caused by gas leakage. It could not be
called an incident of terrorism.”
He said no evidence of explosive material was found from the blast site, adding that a
complete forensic report is being awaited.

A powerful explosion in the upscale DHA area killed eight people and injured 35 others,
only 10 days after a suicide bomb attack right in front of the Punjab Assembly had claimed 15 lives.

The blast crumpled cars and sent panic rippling through the city after a wave of attacks
across Pakistan killed more than 130 people.

The explosion, occurred at an under-construction cafe in the Defense Housing
Authority area’s Z Block, killed the café owner Moazam Paracha, who was also
chief executive officer of telecom company Airlink.

Reports said neither any ball-bearing were found from the scene nor any sort of stink was reported.
The authorities were removing wreckage of the building from the scene today that may also lead to more findings.

An initial report of the incident has been filed to Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif.
