KARACHI, Pakistan: Unknown miscreants threw a grenade on a private school in Gulshan-i-Iqbal Block area of Karachi on Tuesday morning; however, luckily no human loss occurred.

The Sindh education minister Nisar Ahmed Khuhro took notice of the blast and sought a report over the incident from Additional Inspector General (AIG) Karachi police.

Later, another explosion took place near a vehicle of the Pakistan Rangers in SITE area of Karachi.

The superintendent of police (SP) SITE said that it was low intensity blast and no loss of property or life was caused by it.
