Just an hour after a bomb blast rocked Lahore’s DHA Y-block area on Thursday, another explosion occurred at the city’s Gulberg area, reports the police.

According to reports from the city agency, the blast purportedly occurred near a McDonald’s joint. The terrorists had planted the bomb to target the normally-crowded place. 

There are also reports which claim that the second blast is a mere rumour.

An hour ago, a massive explosion occurred at the DHA’s Z block commercial area where lots of eateries are located. Due to the high intensity of the blast, windows of commercial stores were blown to smithereens.

The government earlier tried to dismiss the blast as a general explosion. However, with the recent terrorists attack claimed by the notorious Islamic State (IS), many are apprehensive all blast-related incidents are perpetrated by terrorists.
