WAH CANTT: An accidental explosion in a plant of the Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) on Thursday left three dead and two injured, said the Inter-Services Public Relations.
A statement issued by the military's media wing said that the explosion was caused by a technical fault in the affected plant.
The technical emergency response team at the POF — a major firearm, defence contractor, and military corporation headquartered in Wah Cantt — declared site of explosion clear while taking the situation under control, the ISPR said, adding that the injured were shifted to a hospital.
The windows of nearby buildings were shattered by the intensity of the blast, Geo News had earlier reported, citing sources within the police.
