The same Front had claimed responsibility for crackers blasts on Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop, at Hall Road, Allama Iqbal Town and in Tibbi City area in the recent past. On receiving information, police and Rescue 1122 teams reached the spot and shifted the injured to Sir Ganga Ram and Mayo hospitals.

CCPO Lahore Mohammad Aslam Tareen told reporters that investigations for both the blasts were underway and the police had started a search operation in various areas of the City. He said that there was a possibility that locals were involved in the attacks. Later, two FIRs were also registered with Race Course and Shahdara police stations in this regard. Two eyewitnesses of Race Course incident namely, Mohammad Anees and Mohammad Rasheed, owners of Billa Paan Shop, located near Crown Internet Cafe, said they were busy in making paans when a cylinder type blast took place. The people started racing towards safe places considering it a suicidal blast but thanks to Allah Almighty there was no loss of life, they added. Mian Ahmed Meraj, owner of Crown Arcade, told TheNation that a 20-year-old youth Aamir, owner of the Crown Internet Cafe, was his tenant and doing business of property and internet cafe. Reply to a query, he said they never received any threat. He said Aamir himself was in India with his family and his brother Awais was running the cafe. He further said no objectionable activities took place in the cafe. A senior police officer while talking to TheNation said that militant leader of a banned outfit namely Qari Ibrahim, the mastermind of Data Darbar deadly attack, has confessed that Afghanistan-based Indian terrorists are directly involved in numerous suicidal attacks carried out in Pakistan. He said the network is being operated from Jalalabad city of Afghanistan. Analysts, however, said foreign hand is involved in such heinous acts. Earlier, security agencies had also confirmed that Afghanistan-based Indian-sponsored terrorists are targeting shrines, mosques, and government installations in Pakistan in order to spread sectarianism.
