Pakistan has been struck by a wave of terrorist attacks in recent weeks, killing at least 130 people across the country and leaving hundreds wounded.

The provincial government of Punjab tweeted saying it was a generator blast and teams from Punjab Forensic Science Laboratory have reached the spot to collect evidence.

The province has ordered an investigation into the blast and a report has been sought from the Inspector General of Police.

“The area has been encircled. Nothing can be said about the nature of blast yet,” Law Minister Punjab Rana Sanaullah said.
