He said the attackers fled to the building's kitchen shortly after police opened fire on them but they blew up their explosive vests, killing one police and one civilian near them.

Those among the injured were three police personnel and four civilians.

The injured were transferred to a police hospital in the district and an investigation has been launched into the incident.

No group has claimed the responsibility for the attack yet.
