At least five passengers were injured in a blast targeting a passenger train in Balochistan's Bolan district on Friday.

Levies sources said "miscreants" had targeted the Akbar Bugti Express passenger train in the Hirak area of district Bolan.

Bogie Number 9 was partially damaged from the impact of the blast, which rocked the entire area, sources added.

The injured were rushed to nearby Mach hospital for medical treatment, where an emergency had been declared.

Frontier Corps personnel, levies and police reached the spot as investigations into the incident went underway. The affected train was later brought to the Mach Railway Station.
