They said an explosive device weighing about half a kg was placed near the boundary wall of Government Primary School for Girls at Gul Mohammad Kalmati Goth near Murtaza Chowrangi. Two cars parked near the school-building were also damaged when the device containing ball bearings exploded, SP Akhtar Farooq said. 

The SP quoting the bomb disposal squad said it was not a time device or a remote-controlled bomb. Instead, it carried safety fuse which went off in 40-45 seconds after the bomb had been placed. The school was closed for the weekly holiday. No one was injured. The SP said it seemed the attackers wanted to create panic.
