DALBANDIN: A bomb blast damaged a railway track in Balochistan’s Dalbandin area on Thursday.

“Unknown men planted explosive material on the railway track in the Dalbandin area,” Levies sources said adding that the explosive devise was detonated with remote control when a Taftan-bound goods train was passing from there.

The explosion caused the derailing of two bogies of the train, official sources said.

However, no loss of life occurred, sources added.

Pakistan Railways officials confirmed the incident and said repair work of the damaged portion of the track had been started.

Law enforcement agencies reached the site soon after the incident and placed a cordon around the affected site.
