This is not the only blast that had taken place in Quetta this week. On Monday, a bomb blast had injured nine people when a police van was targeted in the city. 

According to police, the blast took place due to explosive material planted in a motorcycle on Quetta's Spinny road.

Balochistan’s provincial capital is witnessing a series of blasts targeting police vehicles, as this is the third incident of such nature to take place within a short time period.

Last week, at least one person died in an explosion at the city's Double Road. Officials said that 10 others were injured in the same blast.
