According to reports, ambulances and other rescue services were finding it hard to reach the blast victims at some places because the route had been cordoned off with containers by the authorities to halt the move of the demonstrators.

A government spokesman Mohammad Ismail Kawoosi said, “The dead and wounded were taken to Istiqlal hospital near the blast scene.”

No terror group has yet claimed responsibility of the attack but authorities believe that the Taliban could be behind it.
