The blast went off at a house located about 120 metres from Saeed’s residence in Johar Town, TV news channels reported citing police officials. Lahore police chief Ghulam Mehmood Dogar told reporters two of the injured died in Jinnah Hospital.
Saeed has for long had a residence in Johar Town. However, he is currently in jail in Lahore after he was arrested and convicted last year in a string of cases related to his involvement in terror financing.
Dogar also told reporters the incident appeared to be a “bomb blast” but investigations were underway to determine the exact nature of the explosion.
