Bombs damage train tracks
QUETTA: Two bombs exploded at a five-hour interval on a railway track in Dera Allah Yar, some 340 kilometres south of Quetta, on Tuesday.
Police officer Abdul Latif Baloch said that a police team found a bomb and was searching the track for more bombs when the first bomb went off. He said three policemen suffered minor injuries.
“The bomb exploded after Chiltan Express had just passed the railway track and Quetta Express was a few kilometres away,” a local journalist said.
Baloch said that the police had arrested two suspects on the basis of information given by witnesses. The second bomb exploded at about 10.45pm near the Sohbatpur railway crossing. A police official told Daily Times by phone that the explosion had damaged the track, but no casualty was reported.
