Haroon, who was ANP's candidate for the PK-78 constituency of Peshawar, was the son of Bashir Ahmed Bilour, a senior ANP figure who was martyred in a suicide blast in Peshawar in 2012.
The blast took place in Yakatoot area of Peshawar when a corner meeting of ANP was underway, eyewitnesses say.
Zulfiqar Ali Babakhel, a spokesman for the Lady Reading Hospital, confirmed the death toll from the blast saying that 47 wounded persons were brought to the hospital. Bilour suffered serious injuries and was shifted to the hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.
Noting that he had remained with Haroon Bilour throughout the election campaign, Danial, nonetheless, urged party workers to not lose hope.
A suicide bomber blew himself up at a corner meeting late last night moments after Haroon Bilour entered to a joyous welcome marked by fireworks, which the assailant used as their cover, killing at least 14 and wounding 65 others, 15 of whom were in critical condition.
The rescue teams and law enforcement agencies reached the site of the blast.
"Tomorrow, if they attack me too, every party worker will come out as Haroon Bilour". The ANP governed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, of which Peshawar is the capital, from 2008 to 2013.
ANP senior leader Mian Iftikhar Hussain said the attack was meant to derail democracy and delay the elections scheduled for July 25. The ANP, which campaigns against the Taliban, has been a regular target of militants operating in Pakistan's northwest.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday's attack.
The blast left more than 25 people injured, in the first major incident of violence ahead of general elections in Pakistan.
