Three people were killed while two others sustained injuries after an accidental explosion occurred in one of the plants of the Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) on Thursday, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.
Per the military’s media wing, the explosion occurred due to a technical fault. The injured have been shifted to a hospital.
The ISPR added that the technical emergency response team at the POF — which is a major firearm, defence contractor, and military corporation headquartered in Wah Cantt — has cleared the accidental site and the situation is under control.
The windows of nearby buildings were shattered by the intensity of the blast.
