The interior ministry told the BBC the suicide blast was followed by another two explosions in the area.
However, no-one has taken responsibility for the latest attack that killed so many people.
Afghanistan, which has come under the radar of Islamic State, has witnessed a series of blasts in various parts of the country in the last few months.
