KARACHI: At least 15 people have been killed and 115 others sustained injuries in a powerful blast at CID building located near Sindh Chief Minister House in a very sensitive area of the metropolis, Geo News reported Thursday.

Banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan took no time in claiming responsibility of the attack.

Gunshots were reportedly fired just before the occurrence of the blast, sources said.

Ambulances are ferrying the wounded to nearby hospitals where emergency has been declared.

Hospital sources put the number of injured brought in at over 115.

A number of houses located near Civil Lines were also damaged while the powerful shock wave released by the blast also shattered windowpanes of a number of surrounding buildings.
