Gas pipeline blown up

QUETTA: A 12-inch diameter gas pipeline was blown up in the Loti area of Dera Bugti on Friday. According to official sources, militants had planted an improvised explosive device (IED) close to the gas pipeline. “The IED exploded with a loud bang, blowing up the 12-inch diameter gas pipeline,” sources said and added that gas supply from wells 12 and 7 to the purification plant got suspended after the blast. The Frontier Corps (FC) personnel reached the spot and cordoned off the area to launch a search operation. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, officials suspected that Baloch insurgents operating in the area might have done it.
