DERA MURAD JAMALI: At least four passangers including a woman were killed when three coaches of a passenger train derailed owing to a blast on a railway track near Shaheed Aziz Billo check post in Dera Murad Jamali on Sunday.
According to police, several other passengers also sustained injuries as a result of the incident.
Last year in October, a blast had damaged at least 10 feet of railway tracks near Machh, Balochistan.
The Jaffar Express was travelling to Punjab when the driver saw an explosive device on the track and applied the brakes. The train didn’t suffer damage nor were passengers wounded as a result of quick action on the part of the driver.
In a similar incident, Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) officials had in May last year found an explosive device kept in a pressure cooker near a railway track in the Dasht town of Kharan district. They managed to defuse the bomb in time.
The BDS officials reached the site soon after a blast that happened in the same area earlier that day.
