The blast spread panic in the area. A heavy contingent of police reached the spot and cordoned off the area, by blocking Ravi Road and Circular Road. Ambulances of Rescue 1122 and Edhi Foundation shifted the injured to Mayo Hospital and Nawaz Sharif Hospital.

The bomb, which was planted at the entrance of the one-room-shrine, shattered its glass windows.
