The bomb exploded at 11 pm in a car that attempted to overtake a line of vehicles at a security checkpoint to get into the parking lot of the club, said Abdul Ghaffar Jumani, a Karachi police inspector.

Hospital officials said that the dead man was a 30-year-old Karachi inhabitant. Two of the injured were children.

The club was staging an outdoor musical performance featuring visiting Nigam and local Pakistani artists.

No one claimed responsibility for the explosion, and police said they had no motive. The small, maroon-coloured car was blown apart by the powerful explosion and caught fire. Four other cars were damaged.
