A man was killed and seven others were injured when a bomb exploded in a Turbat market on Tuesday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel, quoting security sources.

The blast was carried out with the help of an improvised explosive device (IED) which was fitted to a motorcycle.

The explosion caused damage to several vehicles including a nearby auto workshop. Windows of nearby buildings broke due to the intensity of the blast.

One man was killed and seven others were injured in the bomb blast. The injured were shifted to a hospital in Turbat by the security and rescue personnel.

Police have cordoned off the area and are conducting an investigation to ascertain the reason for the blast. Nobody claimed responsibility for the blast so far. However, the investigators were busy to ascertain the reason of the blast as who did it, how and why.

Balochistan in recent months has seen an increase in attacks. Earlier in May, six security forces personnel, including one officer, were martyred when a remote-controlled improvised explosive device (IED) struck their vehicle near Pakistan-Iran border.
