Blast in Bolan, Baluchistan Derails Train, Over 8 injured


QUETTA: A senior Railway official reported that an explosion near a railroad track in the Paneer neighborhood of Baluchistan’s Bolan region on Friday caused at least eight injuries. Muhammad Kashif, a spokesman for Pakistan Railways in Baluchistan, said that the explosion happened while the Peshawar-bound Jaffer Express was driving by.

According to him, six of the train’s bogies derailed as a result of the explosion, injuring at least eight individuals. The injured were sent to a local hospital, and all hospitals in the district have been placed on emergency. The train’s many bogies were derailed, he claimed, by a remote-control explosion. He claimed rescue workers had been sent to the area.

The incident has not yet been the subject of a police statement. At least 17 people were hurt in various acts of terrorism across Baluchistan on December 25, including six security officials, one of whom was a captain.
