Karachi, Jun.10 (ANI): At least one person was killed and three others, including a retired police official were injured in a bomb blast that ripped through the main gate of the Pakistan Navy's staff colony in Baldia town here on Thursday.

According to reports, the bomb was planted on a motorcycle parked under a bridge in front of the naval colony.

Several motorcycles and vehicles parked near the main gate caught fire following the 'low intensity' blast, The Nation reports.
