QUETTA: An explosion was reported near the ‘sensitive’ Cantonment Board area of Balochistan’s Zhob district on Friday.

A deputy commissioner in Zhob confirmed the blast while talking to media.

A heavy contingent of security forces’ personnel reached the blast site and cordoned off the area.

Unofficial sources said that four people were injured in the explosion but the casualties could not be independently verified.

Zhob is considered to be one of the sensitive districts of Balochistan since it borders with the country’s volatile tribal belt. It is also considered to be a transit point for militants sneaking from neighbouring Afghanistan and the tribal belt of Pakistan.
