Twin suicide bombings claimed 59 lives at the Police Lines Peshawar on Monday.

According to Police sources, two suicide bombers blew themselves up inside a mosque in the police line. The attack left at least 157 people injured. The injured were rushed to Lady Reading’s Hospital for medical treatment.

An emergency was imposed in the hospital to provide medical treatment to the injured by the blasts that rocked the Peshawar police lines area.

Speaking to the media, Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Peshawar Muhammad Ijaz Khan said that the roof of the mosque collapsed after the blast. “A number of jawans are still stuck under the rubble and rescuers are trying to pull them out.”

“The smell of explosives has been detected but it is too early to say anything substantial,” he said.

Khan said between 300 to 400 police officials were present in the area at the time of the blast. “It is apparent that a security lapse occurred,” the CCPO told the media. He added that the bodies and injured persons have been moved to the LRH.
