QUETTA: At least three people died as a vehicle exploded in Balochistan’s Ziarat District on Friday.

Police officials confirmed one more person was injured in the blast which occurred near Kharwari Baba picnic point in Ziarat.

Major Kabir, assistant commissioner for Ziarat, confirmed that a woman was among the three people killed in the blast. He said the victims were from Karachi and were in Ziarat for the Eidul Fitr holidays.

The official said the blast was most likely a cylinder explosion but investigations were under way to ascertain the cause.

Five victims of cylinder explosion in passenger van laid to rest

In May this year, at least five people were burnt to death and seven others were critically injured after a passenger van’s CNG cylinder exploded near the Kashmore toll plaza.

The victims belonged to Kandkhot and were identified as Hazar Khan Chachar, his wife Manzooran Chachar, their daughter three-year-old Kainat, and two women, Muradan Behalkani and Lal Khatoon Behalkani.

In November last year, a child was killed and 20 people sustained injuries after a gas cylinder exploded inside a shop in Turbat.

The explosion, which occurred at a shop near Turbat Park Hotel, sparked a blaze that engulfed a school van parked nearby.
