It is understood that five people were injured - three members of the Khan family - after a parcel containing flowers and a card were delivered to the home around midday.

It is not known who sent the letter bomb or why.

A team of policemen cordoned off the upmarket Stephen Dlamini Road (formerly Essenwood) as curious neighbours gathered to find out what had unfolded at the Khan household.

A shaken Saleem Khan‚ an insurance broker who leased the house‚ said he had narrowly missed becoming a victim.

He had to rush his family members to hospital‚ one who is believed to be in a critical condition.

Garrith Jameson of Rescue Care paramedics said police conducted a "controlled explosion" to secure the house.

The house is owned by one of the directors of the Willowton Group of companies.
