DERA MURAD JAMALI: A bomb blast occurred outside the house of a retired policeman in Dera Murad Jamali’s Bohar Mahala area on Saturday.

However, no loss of life was reported in the incident.

Police said unknown men planted an explosive device outside the house of Kazi Khan Bugti, a retired employee of the police department that went off. However, the attack did not result in any casualties.

Police launched a probe into the incident.

Dera Murad Jamali is a small town located in the Nasirabad district in Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan.

Balochistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan, suffers from a local separatist insurgency. Apart from a long-running nationalist movement, there has also been an alarming rise in sectarian terrorism in the province recently, with ethnic and religious minorities often targeted by militants.
