He said two of the injured were in a critical condition. Large numbers of security personnel were deployed in the area as part of security measures for Balochistan Assembly's session. The road also leads to the Chief Minister's Secretariat.

The security forces immediately cordoned off the blast site, whereas, rescue teams rushed to the spot and moved the injured persons to nearby hospitals.

According to sources, a suicide bomber riding a motorcycle detonated his explosives at the check-point after failing to reach Balochistan Assembly.

The injured have been shifted to Civil Hospital and Balochistan Medical Complex (BMC), while emergency has been declared in these medical facilities. Media personnel have all gathered at the provincial assembly.
