“Can’t say anyone was a target until nature is determined,” the CCPO Lahore Office said. 

Of the 17 injured, eight people are believed to be very critical.

This is to be noted that Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed is on India’s list of five most wanted terrorists. He played a key role in carrying out the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

In 2020, 70-year-old Saeed was sentenced to 15-and-a-half years in jail in Pakistan.
