The blasts, which took place at 11 am at the Kissa Khwani market, set at least eight shops and surrounding vehicles aflame.
According to Dawn News, the first blast was relatively smaller, and has been likened to a hand grenade. The second was much stronger and more destructive.
Minister of Health Shaukat Yusufzai stated that the Peshawar Police Station was the main target of the two blasts.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has also condemned the blast as an act of terror.
An emergency was declared in Lady Reading Hospital after the blast.
