Initial reports suggested that the explosive material was planted inside a truck which was loaded with fruit and parked at the busy Bund Road for at least three days. "After a couple of minutes when I gained my senses, I saw some people injured", Hanif said.

The injured were rushed to nearby Mayo Hospital, Services Hospital and Mian Munshi Hospital, where an emergency had been imposed.

The police have cordoned off the area soon after the blast.

The release said the State Department travel warning for Pakistan issued on May 22, 2017 remains active.

Out Fall Road is the route that the former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif had to take while returning to his hometown for the first time since the Panama Papers verdict on July 28.

DIG Haider Ashraf confirmed that it was a bomb blast and said that the blast has created a huge crater at the blast site. "We have launched investigation on all aspects", he said.

"Due the impact of the blast, I fell on the ground".

It has also been reported that the blast was of such an intensity that it damaged windows of nearby buildings and and vehicles in its vicinity.

The cultural capital of Pakistan, Lahore has often been the theatre of bloody insurgent attacks in the past, but they are scarce these past few years and security has overall improved in the country.

The latest attack came some two weeks after a powerful explosion claimed the lives of at least 26 people and injured dozens more in the city.

In February, a suicide bomber killed 14 people, including senior police officers, near the Punjab Assembly here.
