The investigation into the Lahore blast took a new turn when six arrested suspects turned out to be labourers working in a building near Anarkali police station, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

After the blast in Lahore, the police spotted some suspects in the cameras of Safe City Authority and they were immediately taken into custody.

Ahmed, who was in the building, said the workers had gone to the market to buy something after eating.

The explosion shattered the glass of the counter in the prize bond dealer's shop and caused a stampede, as after the currency fall on the ground.

The falling currency on the ground also exposed the cruel mentality of the people during the blast.

Instead of helping those injured in the blast, these walking dead bodies of dead conscience ran away to collect scattered notes and prize bonds.

Hafiz Asim who was selling prize bonds has registered a case against unknown looters. In First Information Report (FIR), the looted amount has been registered as Rs725,000.

On the other hand, a high alert has been issued across the country following the Anarkali blast.

Letters have been written to the Chief Secretary and IGs of Punjab, KPK, Sindh and Balochistan.

Despite, the Interior Ministry issued a high alert followed the blast, shopkeepers are cleaning the scattered glass at the accident site by themselves.
